Well I put the 600/3200 MAX_INFOS/MAX_SAMPLES (or the like) values by hand
as the 0.4.2c install.sh does not ask for them as the 0.3.3e did. A minute

Yes, actually I fired somthing and had some errors (some macroes not
previously defined, a matter of headers suppose) and _immediately_ turned
to try the prebuilt binaries (as I'm already testing a lot of stuff),

And about the MIDI keyboard:

Yes he is. Maybe the tips were from him, some Roland... II, but I would go
on a mute keyoard instead (and use the AWE synth)... if not, me too I can
scan in the folder :-)... Of course I think the opposite than Britton,
that is a weighted keys keyboard would be better to me, though I don't
absolutely have any pianistic technique... it's just that I type on a
computer keyboard already too much each day and don't look forward to take
that taste with me when playing... Was it you or Toersten speaking of
enjoying really making music... "buy a guitar instead...". Yes, my trumpet
is quite another thing that what comes out of the soundcard, not only the
valves I mean but the sound!... and the control I have on it, on each note
attack... it is a true instrument compared to a pseudo one. Anyway, back
to the keyboard: in case I decide, the budget point will be quite
relevant, + room + weight of the thing being that I have no room and I'll
have to move it here and there.
