Hi everybody!

I'm trying to make a list of GS program names.
I used the table from https://cdn.roland.com/assets/media/pdf/SC-8850_OM.pdf as a base.
However, there were a lot of abbreviations I could not understand.

Could you please take a look at https://github.com/jazz-soft/JZZ-midi-GM/blob/master/data/gs-sc8850.txt
and suggest some fixes?

Thanks a lot!

Thanks again! The fixes will be in the next release.
Sorry, they are actually spelled "Uilleann Pipes".

"Nm" appears to be without cuts, and "Or" with more, but I don't know what the rules are for applying them, or what the original words are.

SL: Steam Locomotive; 1: whistle, 2: running gear
