You can never have too many sounds :) It's great if other people can
use any I've created. Fits nicely in the GPL and Creative Commons ethos

Steel Wire is still there, but I shuffled the patches around a while

Eventually I'm going to have the do another reoganisation - into more
than one bank - I'm running out of empty slots!
