There, I've answered your inevitable question, no matter what it was going to be.
The answer is
Let me elaborate on that negative,
"Is this 1994 CD telling me (at this very 2003 moment), back when Doktor Beaker was touring the world as head keyboard technician for ELP, and creating this glorious Keith Emerson music, I was here in Texas, thinking I had a real job, writing midifiles for Bob Cox's PSYCHOTRON and PHOTO FACTORY software?"
Man, that's what I call ULTRACHUG!! That is a truly SCARY and DREADFUL thought, if anyone reading this doubts it, check this FRAIDY TICK mix I just made here two days ago. (see download links) It started from one of those 1994 midi files, so it wasn't a complete waste of my time. 2003 is a much scarier time, and you can hear it.
This mix was made with 2 synth tracks. I ran midi track #1 from FRAIDY.MID thru Reaktor, tweaking knobs while Reaktor fucked it up, recording in real time. As I listened back I thought, "I should play some lead against that", I hit STOP, hooked up the QS7, recorded from the beginning, one pass. Then I mixed on the next pass. Tweaked that mix into a -3db stereo digital master, rendered and uploaded this mp3 (192kbs), I call it FRAIDY TICK. I like it, the CD is much better, of course. I have also uploaded the original midi file for anyone who wants to hear it, or fuck with it themselves.

Unfortunately I didn't record the midi from the live lead, only the audio. It would have been interesting because I used 2 pitch controllers. One was the standard 2 semitones pitch wheel, the other was a 'down only' slider, a whammy bar down to the depths of Hell. There's a studio tip for you aspiring lead synth players:
between 2 pitch benders,
completeness, I gotta mention drummer
