Cos more of anything is better :twisted:

Multitimbrality is just a cost benefit, it allows a single instrument to do the work of two or more.

It's funny, but everyone says that. It actually has an extended body, kind of like a lobster. I'd love to walk one of these down the street on a leash just to see how quickly the sidewalk clears.
