It's not really my thing. I know it's something special, classical Indian music and you've done it a great service, but that doesn't make me appreciate it. Well done either way though.

I don't know what kind of tuning temperament you used here but it sounds pretty cool, did the midi have pitch bending in it already to get those quarter step sounds?

Thanks for listening smile The melody had pitch bending already, but in the initial piano and the baritone sax, I alternated between pitch bend values 8192 and 10240 for the half semitones
