Please do!

I made a cumbersome solution using a regular tapin/tapout chain with
filtered feedback, fed by multiple copies of the (pre-filtered) source to
"subdivide" the loop time. This allowed 5*689Hz fundamental.

On the way, I made a patcher that accurately emulates an analog
state-variable filter. I'll post it if there's any interest...

Hello to all,

I would just like to announce that my new application is out called the
MPX 100 Editor. It is an editor/librarian for the Lexicon MPX 100
Effects Processor. Of course it was built with Max. You can find out
more about it at:

Sorry for this shameless self promotion :-)

There was some mention on the list a few weeks go of this controller. I
wrote to Kawai and they indicated that the units are no longer in
production. Has anyone any idea where I might find one?

Thanks, Fred
