these are older versions for older machines/OSes. I decided to keep
them here. I haven't had a chance to update the Windows version yet,
so it may not run at all.

(These notes are also from the original version done
four years ago, but still more-or-less valid for the
2010 OSX upgrade)
- This is based on last year's
ambient-holiday music application, but this years' is New! and
Improved!. Hopefully it will actually run on your machine...
- I honestly don't know how well the Windows versions will function on
other machines. I ran it on my XP laptop at home for several hours
continuously and it seems ok. I'm still fairly clueless about
creating the Windows standalones. Suggestions are always welcome!
- Here are the source max-patches for the app (if anyone is interested):
As ever, they're pretty ugly; I did the quick-and-dirty approach to this little
project. You will need the newer
[rtcmix~] v 1.4
(2010: v 1.7)
for these patches to run properly.
and to ring in an ambient New Year's, be sure to check out the
app! Here's also hoping that 2007 will be
much much better than 2006!
