That was a lovely piece Richard. Love hearing things I've not heard before. Still working on the Prelude getting it to where I stop making mistakes with the notes. Tempo is fine if I can just keep it there bars 8-9 lots of eighth notes to deal wit

I would suggest formatting your USB stick using the Rufus tool I linked to (FAT32, default allocation size, full format) - you can also post the log file. This will remove another potential variable. Then try the MIDItoAudio function again. It's pe

Is there joy in playing only for yourself? For me, goodness gracious yes. To me, playing any piece is really between my wits, technical abilities, the composition, and the instrument. This attitude of course makes it more difficult to play in publi
