Did he just say Notworthy? Reminds me of Wayne and Garth. We're
Notworthy! Sorry, I couldn't help it....
I actually do have a serious question. Upon reading about dynamic control
(cresc./decresc.), I was wondering if any of you who have used MusicTime
Deluxe know of how to control the volume. I can make the whole piece play
quietly, and I can also make it play at a relative ff. But I don't know
how to make a run go from p to f... is this even possible on MusicTime?
Or is it just my piece of junk soundcard? (It is 8-bit Mono, but I've
heard it crescendo and decrescendo, so it shouldn't be my sound card)
Thanks for your help!

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to
see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
If an elephant falls, which suffers more: the elephant or the ground?
