I see. You use the same files/file-format as Cakewalk and Sonar. That's 
great. That means that a lot of MIDI tone generators have already been 
described as an .ins file. In fact, I found all of my several MIDI tone 
generators' .ins files at the following location, if this may help 
anyone else:

CakeWalk.net Instrument Definitions

Although I currently know very little about Qtractor, I could probably 
help with spelling, grammar, removing ambiguity and phrasing things 
clearly--typical editor-type work. I've done quite a lot of picky 
editing in the past, having worked in the printing industry and having 
friends and family members who are writers.

So yes, I can certainly try to help edit the Qtractor manual, if you and 
Jim would like that. :-)
