MAJOR UPDATES- Composition Improvements and a Mystery Instrument Shop

- However, those music scores that were registered on the Music Album before this feature was applied can be edited.

Please change striker's black spirit rage to something more useful, the skill has weak dmg small AOE, practically lock must for any striker player, doing worst than good to keep it active.
