    Re: action on electric mando

    I dropped it down about .5mm. No string buzzing. Was quick and easy once I spent 45 minutes trying to find a 1.5mm hex wrench in my toolbox!

    Help with TEFView

    Trying out some TEF files from the site. In playback, TEFView wants to default to an Oboe sound. If I change it to another instrument with "MIDI Options", it plays that instrument until the end of...
