Thanks, that makes sense, glad to hear you ended up with a working
solution, I will probably go down the same route! (see my question below)

I did a little archaeology and found a scanned version of the original
manual, and yes it does contain a MIDI implementation chart!.  I don't see
anything referencing using the volume channel, only the velocity of key ON
messages (at least I think thats what I'm reading). I'm attaching a screen
shot of the page, not sure if it will attach right to the list.

So my next question,  Is there a way to change the note velocity from an
inputed midi file in real time?  I'm not above using multiple processes and
named pipes if need be.
