For the second problem:
On this sound-engine you are limited to 128 MIDI programs and the MIDI percussion-MIDI-channel won't change anything and so program "0 - Acoustic Grand Piano" is usually used as a percussion kit.
When you want to use the piano use the program "1 - Bright Acoustic Piano" , but make sure your voicegroup contains all these instruments.

Hope you understood my English ;-)
Alright, I've tried that.
I'm using the voicegroup offset of 0x43B8A0, which is;

01 - Bright Acoustic
09 - Glockenspiel
35 - Fretless Bass
45 - Pizzicato Strings
46 - Harp
47 - Timpani
48 - Strings
60 - French Horn
73 - Flute
My instrument setup, after some fiddling, contains only Pizzicato Strings, Flute, Timpani, and Fretless Bass.
I'm using an empty offset as the Base Destination.
When I press "Assemble that Ugly Thing", I get an error message that reads:

"Run-time error '13':
type mismatch"

once I hit either OK or X on that message, Sappy closes and a new error message appears that reads:

"Run-time error '-2147418105 (80010007)':
Automation error
The callee (server [not server aplication]) is not available and disappeared; all connections are invalid. The call may have executed."

Upon hitting OK/X for that message it closes and nothing else appears.
What do I do to avoid this?
