I was able to dig out an old mp3 of the final recording, so using that for
comparison it seems that the P51f is probably an earlier version of PC51f.
This gave somewhere near similar results, but still not what I wanted.
I then investigated emulating the sounds in Yoshimi. This has been much more
successful, and I shall continue to tweak things till I'm satisfied.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
