I'd expect the effect to suffer somewhat on a notebook's internal speakers, 
yes. The lack of bass could make the HH seem more overbearing than it 
really is, but I'll check on other speakers myself. I might drop the level 
a couple of dB.

That's a fair comment, and something that's relatively easy to do with SC's 
generative-music powers. I was going for a more mechanical sound in the 
drums (it's a sampled 80s drum kit, calling old drum machines to mind), but 
it may be more listener-friendly to spice up this element.
