But who knows, maybe iNfraNe would like the challenge of writing some SW inspired music. ;)
Like I said: making a soundbank that sounds even close to real instruments is far beyond the mapsizelimit. Thus sticking with an "undressed" version of the normal database is probably best. Furthermore: making a less instruments version of a midi song is probably fairly simple, unless the arrangement isn't quite up for it.
But: is this worth the effort? I highly doubt it. It won't sound much better I think.
