Percussion is one of the stronger points from our past patchsets so that
won't be a problem. There will probably be an option to choose between mono
and stereo percussion. If we don't get problems with 'phasing' sound with
stereo samples this will give a very impressive sound. Currenty we are
opting for mono and stereo percussion and mono instruments but that might
change. As soon as there is any update or demo material I'll post an email
regarding this to this mailinglist.

All our products are sold below 20 USD (+ creditcard costs) because we thing
products will sell equal or better when everybody is able to afford them.
Since somebody will be hosting the files for this project for us (a strong
linux advocate who works at an ISP) we won't have bandwidth costs for both
the full version and the free version. This means that the 15$ price (+ 3$
creditcard costs) is pretty much fixed right now.
