A little, but while it claims 210, the midi spec only allows 127. What are
0-19, ans 30-127? Large mystery I guess short of rigging a loop to
repeatedly send each number & see if I can figure out what instrument it is
supposed to sound like. Nothing I can get from its own front panel sounds
remotely like the screaming Picolo I'm getting for the melody line.

The software I'm playing it with has several 'translation tables' available
so as to do a best match between GM and say an old Yamaha PSS-480 or 3 or 5
other older casio's & rolands plus straight GM but something is miss-
matched, badly. I'll plug it (the MT-240) directly into the original midi
out port tomorrow and see if its good, or if the scores are suffering from
bit rot after 20 years.

Thanks for taking the time to look, I appreciate your efforts Tim.
