For the musicians around I'd like to mention the Freepats project
- (project page)
- (individual instruments in subfolders)
- (a library)

The homepages self description:
- "Freepats is a project to create a free and open set of instrument patches, in any format, that can be used with softsynths."

The interesting part about it:
- Although the project isn't completed yet, it seems to use the GPL-License with an exception so that you can use the patches in your own compositions without having to GPL these compositions because of that. (Please read the license files!)

Surprisingly there is very few about the pat-format on the net.
It took me nearly an hour to find these links:

A patchguide:

Some info of someone who had similar problems (but finally succeeded):

Something about the format:

Another description of the file format:

The last document says it: There is no fine tune- 
Could it be the "Root frequency" you are looking for?

Good luck!   :)

Thanks! That clarifies a lot!

Hidden: My mistake! In older versions of Milky it was necessary to type in *.pat by hand.
I oversaw the improvement by trying to load them (the Impulsetracker way) as samples-
Actually there are only the pitch issues left for the "known bugs list".

It is nice to have Gravis-Patches support!  :)

It's very very hidden however, and different to Impulsetracker you can't choose which sample of an instrument you would like to use.

What I like is that you can load a pat as an instrument!

Here are the bugs:

- Not possible to use it as a sample
- Usually loaded at wrong pitch
- Multisample patches are loaded totally mistuned to each other. Just try to use one of those instruments!

All in all a great "hidden feature", which needs some work still! 8)
