Polyphonic Music version 1.20:

Date: 12/8/89
From: Ed P. Grigassy

Well here it is! My third upgrade in the polyphonic music programs and
C language routines. What's exciting is that I've added Pascal (Turbo, that
is) to the PC three voice world! I'm also very enthusiastic about the new,
improved playing routines (ver 1.10) included in this package. These
routines should set a standard for three voice music since they have the
highest quality I've seen anywhere on the PC market! This package is
definately the most powerful music package you can own without purchasing
extra hardware (like MIDI cards, or sound digitizers).

For info on the updates in this current version, check out the file:
UPDATE.TXT - info on what makes this version of
Polyphonic Music extraordinary

TO PLAY ALL THE SONGS INCLUDED, RUN:
PLAYALL.BAT

Where: = PC, XT, AT, 286, or 386
(use the 286 & 386 for speed-up boards as well)

During the PLAYALL, press any key to jump to the next song,
or Ctrl-C to stop the batch file.

To play individual songs quickly, run:
MAKEPLAY /c

where = 1st_noel -> the first noel
blues -> an experimental blues jam
pachcan -> simplified arragement of the
pachelbel canon
furelise -> beethoven's fur elise
invent13 -> bach's invention no. 13
houseris -> arpeggiated version of house of the
rising sun
stlouis -> st. louis blues, by w.c. handy
and any other .sng file names.

For complete information on all the files in this package, read the file:
POLY.DOC the full documentation of the Polyphonic
Music package (unregistered version).

By the way, if you really want to have some fun, try playing some of the
.ply files at ridiculously fast speeds (like 200 or less, 10 is really
interesting). Running looppoly at these speeds sounds like you are
nearby some heavy machinery! (Type LOOPKB songname 10 )

Enjoy!
