<P CLASS=INFO>MIDIbox BLM doesn't provide any intelligence to play sequences by itself, instead it only acts as a control surface enhancement for the host application such as <A HREF="midibox_seq.html">MIDIbox SEQ V4</A>. This means in other words, that all features are implemented at the host side.</P>
