We gratefully acknowledge the efforts of John Cowles, Warren Trachtman in helping us to get all of this sorted out and presentable; and of John, Warren, John Roache, Oleg Mezjuev, and all the other sequencing artists who have given selflessly of their time in converting black marks on paper to real and listenable sound. Send 'em a note or visit their sites at their name links.!

We're pleased to have recieved special permission from John Roache to post his outstanding sequences. Visit his informative site, where visitors with mono-only sound cards may also download monaural versions. NOTE: Posted sequences by John Roache are all special stereo versions, and require an AWE32 or equivalent sound card for proper playback. If your system has trouble with these spectacular interpretations, go to John's website and download the .zip files, which contain monaural versions.
