Oh! the music was torn from over use, I had to get out of town they brought the noose, Because, I did frisky on the Fisky.   The reeds were extremely risky, What the Hell I threw it all on Mixtures too, The pedal barged in Bombards blaring, Music went flying all over the place, I didn't need it being frisky on the Fisky.   When I was through I was assaulted by the crew, Meyerson's best they took me away, In a straight jacket that day as I broke in, To play Bach and Buxtehude at 2:00 AM, To fulfill my dream being frisky on the Fisky.   I just got out of jail as I broke bail, My lawyer was mad as I broke in, As I improvised on a new song theme, The melody so pompous, but so right, For getting frisky on the Meyerson Fisky.   Can you imagine Tom Lerrer singing this?   Enjoy! I'm a poet and didn't know it!   Ron

It has nothing to do with samples, it's just mixing and matching the existing sounds, and changing how they act and respond. To make this program work you need a Roland Sound Canvas, but this program is not sponsored by Roland in any way. I have SCPOP and really enjoy it. The sounds are awesome!!! Very realistic.   Paul   P.S. The site works, just has been down today. (http://www.scpop.de)
