Certainly icons I make are looking much better now that I'm making them 
18x18 :)  I've been making them as PDFs and slinging them in, but 
haven't checked to see what happens when I pull them out. I'll just 
check ....

Huh.  I dragged one of the drum icons that I made to the desktop, and 
the format had changed to tiff and the name had changed from whatever I 
named it to a string based on the type + variant in the kit editor 
(this latter point is, actually, probably sensible and good).  When I 
opened it in PhotoShop, it was still 18x18, but definitely claiming to 
be a tiff.

Well, I've got to find a way to sing so that it doesn't sound really 
silly!  This may turn out to be harder than remembering how to play 
guitar .... :)

But the drum programming is going well :)  I think I put a little 
reverb on the stereo drums (played out the headphone port of the iBook 
into two adjacent tracks on the deck), but that's about it.
