That's great! Thanks peeps. I was also looking at omsynth, but I've
been trying to avoid installing stuff not in the DeMuDi distro, as
that's always a slippery slide for me to apt-nightmares :) But it
looks like I'm gonna give it a try, if only so I've got  some support
ie. the wiki.

The synth 101 stuff was pretty useful too :) Thanks.

Now, is anyone aware of an apt repo or deb package for omsynth? ;)
