Thank-you, Les, for that insight. It will keep me from 'fixing' things that don't need fixing. I should be able to create files that sound good on small systems and that are distortion-free on any system. One question: Would you tell me if the Overture to Candide which I recently submitted sounds full enough? I have two other arrangements ready to go which sound excellent on my little setup of "mother-board-sound-card attached to cheeze-ball".

: I listened to the file and didn't notice any distortion. I have a Roland JV-2080 hooked up to a pair of Event Project Studio 5 speakers. They are not exactly "high-end" but not the cheapest either, and the file sounds pretty good, no distortion.
: The problem might be with your speakers or amp or the synth you're using runs out of polyphony, etc., it's not the MIDI sequence.
: Like most orchestral pieces, the "Procession of the Nobles" will sound best if arranged for 2 MIDI ports (32 channels).

: : I have the world's cheapest pair of desktop speakers but I also have talent. I'm rewriting some midi files and am wondering: Do people with good sound systems get Godzilla distortion in files like Jeff Adams's (otherwise excelling) arrangement of Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Procession of the Nobles', measures 72 and 75?
