Subject: detonate?

Wondering if the aforementioned object is available for 3.0? On an FTP
site? If it will help for the following?

Or better still, suggestions as to how to record multiple streams of MIDI
which can then be opened in a notation program (Notability for NEXT) and
fall properly within the required tempo and time signature settings of the
piece. For example with material of anything other than 4/4, when played it
sounds 'true' to the specified meter and tempo but when time stamped by the
seq object it is saved as a standard midi file of 4/4. I attempted to use
playSMF as I can specify tempo precisely, but this object doesn't seem to
record channel info. My workaround is to record the whole thing 'live' in
mtr and then one at a time play the tracks from mtr and record into
playSMF, save each file, open in my non IAC sequencer, change meter, resave
and export to Notability. Any advice on quicker solutions appreciated.

Thanks, Eric Rosenzveig

Following is the corrected call for works.  Apologies for the inconvenience.
        The date for the submission of live performance proposals was
incorrect (should have read 1998, not 1997).
