Composers Playpen Availability

I have been rather surprised and pleased that my Sequencer Playpen and

Composer Playpen programs have garnered more attention than I had

anticipated.  And so I have had to modify somewhat my approach to providing

these, simply because I can see that it is going to take more of my

creative time than I had thought.

Here is the path I see toward your acquiring and creating with these

programs. Basically, we begin with the Sequencer Playpen, since it is the

easiest to use and requires minimal equipment to work with. Also, with this program I have provided extensive troubleshooting tools for initial setup that can later be used for the Comosers Playpen as well. When the user can handle the Sequencer Playen, I can provide the Composers' Playpen as well. I intend to monitor the user each step of the way and help and guide him or her through the process.  Here goes:

1. Email me expressing interest in the program.  I then send you as an

   attachment the complete Sequencer Playpen illustrated manual and tutorial.

   No charge.

  1. 2. Upon reading this manual, if the user wishes to continue, a $15 payment can be made through Paypal, where I have an account under, or by personal check or by university purchase order. I will then make available my Sequencer Playpen MAX/MSP program in a MAX Application form, which means that it is fully functional, but it cannot be unlocked, copied, or modified.  However, all creative work can be saved via the embedded “write” - “read” buttons provided for all applicable areas, which allow one to save work as separate Macintosh files.  I will send this program using a third party outfit called YouSendIt where I have an account.  Basically, I upload the program to the YouSendIt site, they notify you with an URL, and you download it (c. 10 mb zipped).  During this process, I am available via email to answer any questions posed by original purchasers, and to guide them through any areas they do not understand, up to one year from purchase

3. If the user wishes to proceed with the Composer Playpen, we can proceed

    with steps 1 - 2 all over again. 

I am not in the position to provide refunds.  Hopefully this step process

will build trust in me and in your own capabilities. 

Very much looking forward to sharing my Playpens with you!
