AW: Listening to a sequence!

Dear Neil and Seqfans, 

A very nice feature! I would add that sequences created along the lines

perhaps also make for good listening. My recommendation for an
(infinite) sequence whose "song comes to an end" (after a few minutes)
is the sequence half-way down the page

Settings: default
Tempo: fastest (240)

Finally, a somewhat "dramatic" one in my opinion is the "jes" sequence
at  (again, I simply took max. tempo and
default values);  Earlier, one of these actually sent a brief shiver
down my spine... but I appear to have lost it (or the settings used) for
the time being. 



It's a shame when the girl of your dreams would still rather be with
someone else when you're actually in a dream.
