Correcting plates would be quite difficult and expensive. Even correcting
manuscript must be a bother. The books for "Grand Hotel" were done on a
computer (and then diazo copied as usual for musical scores). These should
be much easier to correct, although they won't be until the books are worn
out. And they are much more readable than manuscript.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
