Hi Will. Thanks for having a go with that patch. It sounds a lot softer than 
my version, but there are so many different piano sounds that it's difficult 
to know what someone is looking for. I'll continue twiddling the knobs, and 
see what else I can come up with.

Thanks btw for the info for building Zyn. I spent most of yesterday still 
trying to get the Fedora 7 version working without it freezing up. 
Interestingly, if I SSH into F7 from The other machine, and start it from 
there, it works ok.

All the best.
