I have created some confusion by using the word "mood" in two different ways. In one sense, it meant an arrangement of instruments with programmed playing qualities, but in another way, it referred to a corner of the screen that displayed one of these moods. I have been referring to the programmed ones by number, and eventually, they'll have names. I used A, B, C, and D for the four screen corners on the device's face. Hopefully, this is enough to tell the concepts apart.

When my Arduino sketch read names from the SD card, it disregarded them since they were not numbers. I changed the startup function to record the second cell in each row to chars. To print on the screen, I copied the characters to a string and called it like normal.

I dreaded writing the function that would change moods A, B, C, and D. I already had the buttons altering the first integer, but the real work came when I had to compare that integer with one from the comma-delimited data on the card. I intentionally waited for this step because I already encountered each problem. I had working code to recognize a row of spreadsheet data and pull it into an array, so it wasn't too much trouble to make a similar function that would update a mood with different information.
