I stand corrected. So the question is probably more like: out of the 
entire customer base, how many want sound channels? The code would have 
to be written three times, since eash OS does it a little differently.

But I do agree that the sound people have been neglected. I think if 
Kurt could get his MIDI stack to interpret HC-sytle notation it would be 
a big hit. The support queue periodically gets questions about MIDI 
support, and I usually point them to Kurt's work, but having notation 
options in the stack would be a big plus. And I also agree that it would 
probably be a very good RevSelect candidate.
