For now: Taylor Swift spends all of her time on television promoting her garbage music, than on any radio station. Why? Because, a local (San Antonio) radio conglomerate (Clear Channel Communications) killed rock and roll radio. And, in the proces

9190, you raise some excellent points, and I do not disagree with your overall argument. However, the fact remains that the MP11 developers decided not to include organ sounds within the instrument, just as they opted not to include pitch bend/modul
