***************** ***********

QUICKSTART: Locate the AfricanMusicMachine .app in the program folder
and double click on it. Hit the space bar to start and stop. The music
plays on the Mac's internal speakers. Hook your computer's audio output
into your HiFi system, if possible.
NO SOUND?: 1). turn on your computer's internal speaker 2). select a
pattern underneath an instrument.
CLIPPING and/orIRREGULAR TEMPO? Turn off virtual memory and re- boot:
MAX hates it!
You do need SoundManager 3.0 + if you want all 10 voices to sound.
Otherwise you might notice some of the instruments "robbing" others.
DO NOT REMOVE the AfricanMusicMachine .app from it's folder (make an
alias?). Close by selecting "QUIT" from the Apple control bar file menu.
