Once again - welcome! We received good material from you during the past months, and as a result, I feel that this issue will be a good representation of Polyphony style in the future. This issue contains an abundance of good patches, experimenter projects and technical information.
One item that I would like to explain briefly is the questionnaire in the center of this issue. As most of you know, PAIA's product philosophy is to produce kits geared for the electronic hobbyist. We are honoured that some of you are using our products in professional applications, even though they were initially conceived to provide a starting point for experimentation. Recently we have concentrated most of our research and development in the area of electronic music synthesizers as they have been overwhelmingly popular products. We intend to continue releasing new synthesizer modules, but also expand into new lines of kits. There are many areas that we could delve into that are related to synthesizers, and there are many that are completely different technologies. What we are concerned with is - what areas are our readers interested in experimenting with? The questionnaire is your chance to "sound off' as far as what products you have been wishing someone would make, and what kind of information you'd like to see published in Polyphony. There are also a few questions about you, so that we can learn more about you, thus allowing us to more efficiently produce publications, products, instructions and advertising.
It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes and 13c to let us know how we can best serve your interests. If there are things you'd like to mention that aren't on the form, use an extra sheet and enclose it in the questionnaire.
In the next issue (late August or early September), we will do a short summation of what we have learned from the questionnaire. It should be interesting, and I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you!
