Wow. Just wow. This totally shows that my 100% stupidity is made up by 100% 
luck. =)

(I also printed my check number 6666 today.)

I knew I asked this before. And, it's the summer solstice too - so, definitely 
solar related. Watch out, my question will be repeated based on Halley's Comet. 
See you in 76 years. =)

Just to nail my body into the coffin, part of my confusion was some 
slight-of-math-hand stuff. Viena shows in the Preset Level a number as a 
Factor, since it doesn't necessarily show actual internal values (nor should 

So in my case, Viena shows the integer 31 for the internal value 5495, and it's 
not supposed to mean 31sec but "a factor of 31". So you can MULTIPLY this with 
any Instrument Zone value-in-seconds and you'll get your 
final-value-in-seconds. Coincidentally (and this is the slight-of-hand), if you 
add the internal timecents values and then CalcTimeVal(), you get the same 

It confused me because it's two ways of doing the same thing, and I was mixing 
the two approaches improperly.
