The list of general MIDI instruments is easy to find but constantly translating the number to and from the name of the instrument is tedious. The intention was always to display the instrument name on the screen so the list was imported to the program. First, it had to be modified so the instrument names were all exactly sixteen characters long. Short names were buffered with spaces so they appeared centered while long names had to be condensed or shortened. This will eliminate the confusion when looking at a list that is zero-justified versus one that starts at one.

Changing instruments still needs some work because notes can hang up if the instrument changes while a note is active. The hypothesis is that a program change happens every time a note is played since each different instrument used to play on the same channel. Now, the instruments all play on different channels so it should only be necessary to send the sound module the new instrument number when it changes.
