I will definitely try this! And thanks so much for the suggestion. For many
years I wanted to be a drummer and resented the fact that my parents made
me take piano lessons. I was in love with rhythm and syncopation and when I
didn't have to practice my stupid simplified classical compositions (just
kidding) I would bang on the piano as though it were a percussion
instrument (which of course it actually is, I suppose). I've written many a
(juvenile) piece that was very heavy on rhythm and light on melody or
harmonic inventiveness.

So, I'll lay down a piano track that is particularly percussive or rhythmic
and try the Barry's Satan Maximizer first at your suggested settings, and
then play with it some more. It will be fun.

Anyway, thanks again. (and thanks to Paul too, and to Lukas for his plugin
