Eli, Thanks for replying to my "one of the dumber questions" yesterday. If you would be so kind as to indulge a follow-up question - Am I correct in taking "input field" to be the "library" tab that automatically pops up after creating a new software instrument? There is a choice for "Sculpture" in the library, and the default sound when I open it is that of bells, and the only modeling I can do is to change the sound of the bells, which is not the sound I want. I was under the impression that I could choose any instrument, say some keyboard sound, and use "Sculpture" to mold THAT sound, not always start with the same bells. Am I way out in left field? I know I probably sound like an idiot but I would appreciate your time.
