The song I'm working on is just over three minutes long, and I had
about three or four hours into the programming. For no reason at all, I
played with the "Master Tempo" slider. I set it back to 100% then did

slider said anything other than 100%.
I was able to open a backup song file, then copy the changed patterns
from my (now bad) song file into it. Problem solved.
I think there may be something wrong with the way the slider works. I'd
advise "hands off" unless you know what you may end up with. Do a
