A stable release, version 1.6, of MMA--Musical MIDI Accompaniment
is available for downloading. In addition to a number of bug fixes
and optimizations, MMA now features:

 - A new track, the Plectrum. This can generate a realistic MIDI guitar.
   Getting a realistic guitar sound using MIDI has been notoriously difficult
   as calculating the notes in each chord and strumming patterns can be very
   tricky.  Now the MMA PLECTRUM pattern takes care of most of this for you
   so all you have to do is to enter the chords names and how when you want
   each string to be strummed or plucked. An example is available at:


 - Improved chord placement anywhere in a bar.

 - Added MidiCopyright, MidiCue and MidiText commands.

 - Improved lyric generation for Karaoke mode.

MMA is a accompaniment generator -- it creates midi tracks
for a soloist to perform with. User supplied files contain
pattern selections, chords, and MMA directives. For full details
