Hi Josep:

  First of all, thank you for Horgand, it's really a lot of fun and
shows a lot of promise. I haven't got it all figured out yet, but I am
having fun playing around with it.

That's a tough call. Perhaps for now you should consider making your
present design as powerful as possible, without actually redesigning
Horgand. You might later use it as a design framework for a BIAB-type
application, utilizing a soundfont player for your audio/MIDI resource ?
As the owner of a rack full of external MIDI gear, I hate to say this
but it does seem like the day of the external MIDI synth is surely
