Release Campaign, we bring you the very first release

tapestrea- (tap tap) is now released, for
Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows:


TAPESTREA (or taps) is a new set of paradigms and
techniques for sound design (new research, led by
Ananya Misra, with Perry Cook, Ge Wang, and others).

TAPESTREA leverages sinusoidal analysis, wavelet-tree

In addition to the release, one can find documentation,
papers, audio examples, and a video delineating the
ideas and features of Taps, at the URL above.

We invite you to take a look, fire up the system,

There is also a taps mailing list for releases,
updates, discussion, and development.  Join us!
