If you want to use SBCL and CLM-4 (Common LIsp)  on Windows, then you  
dont need sndlib. But I dont know if CLM-4 will compile instruments on  
Windows, you better check that first. To use CM with SBCL on windows,  
use the GraceCL application. in this case you dont need sndlib either.

If you want to use sndlib (sndlib has piano.ins working too i think)  
then you DONT need CLM-4 or  SBCL. But you will have to compile it  
from its sources until I can make a binary release,  I cant tell  
offhand what the problem you are having is due to.

Im sorry this is so confusing, i realized that there are lots of  
choices and compiling is not a trivial process (I did post directions  
on how to compile it to the cmdist list last month.)
  I will make a binary release as soon as the new C++ based Fomus is  
working reliably in Grace, hopefull this happens within two weeks.
