As one of the Digital Symphony authors, I'm really touched by this article.
As the author of MelIDI, I'm pleased too.
Anyone ever written an output module for 16-bit audio for AudioManager? Even the first versions of MelIDI supported multi-stream audio playback using AudioManager, however I removed it from the released versions as CC wanted a licence fee for distributing it. I hear on the grapevine it's now freely distributable; I could look at putting it back in.
