Editorial
Welcome to the first issue of "POLYPHONY", the PAIA people's newsletterand User’s Group journal ; an information exchange primarily for owners of PAIAequipment. Although personal response to each of the many letters received wasan impossible task, we would like to thank you your overwhelming responseto the mention of this publication. The most requester areas of coverage weremany of the same ideas which were discussed here at PAIA during preliminarydevelopment of this project.With electronic music synthesis at a critical point in its development, thereis a multitude of literature dealing with electronic theory and circuit design onone hand and the related fields of music theory, accoustics and recording tech-niques on the other for the serious synthesist to delve into. But, with thetremendous growth in popularity of electronic music the time has come to combinethis wealth of information into a usable format for electronic music applications.The avocations and interests of the people owning synthesizer systems arevaried; from hobbyists and amateur musicians to recording artists and physicslaboratories. Communication between those who are working with similarequipment, combining capabilities and creativity, could produce more appli-cations than any one individual could realize in a lifetime of work. Many timesothers will have accomplished things that you are specifically searching for."POLYPHONY" is being published in response to a need expressed by you.It is intended to be an information exchange. You are the one who will ultimatelymold this publication into what you want and need. We intend to rely heavily onreader contributions with PAIA serving as "Organizer". If you have modificationsto recommend, favorite patches, editorial type comments, new product ideas oranything else that might be of interest to the masses, please share them with us.Our goal is quarterly publication in 1976 but bimonthly publication is apossibility if enough interest is generated. Remember, we are depending onyou for editorial material so spread the word, "Keep those cards and letterscoming in" ( original, eh ? ), and above all  Keep on Synthesizing ! !

STANDARD RING BINDERS STORE INSTRUCTION MANUALSThe small 9X6 inch ring binders available in most dime stores and officesupply houses conveniently holds PAIA instruction and User's manuals in aneasy to use book format which can be expanded as you add to your system.Plastic index tabs, labeling individual manuals, give quick access to thedesired information. Kept near your synthesizer it provides for easy referencewhile developing patches and tuning or servicing the equipment.LOGIC TEMPLATES USED FOR PATCH CHARTSIf you are one of those systhesists that keep records of every patch youdevise you’ve probably been looking for a quick and easy method for drawingthem and still have them turn out neat and uniform.School Bookstores and art supply houses carry plastic drawing templates.Computer logic symbol templates lend themselves quite well to drawing synthesizerpatch charts.EASY TO BUILD PATCH CORD HOLDERSAs synthesizer systems grow, the number and lengths of patch cords increaseproportionally. Eventually, the problem of organization and storage of these cordsbecomes a problem that warrants special attention. The simplest patch cord rack shown in figure A consists of arectangular piece of plywood which hasa number of saw cuts along one edge.Patch cords can be slipped into the slotsand arranged according to length.If you'd like something with alittle more class, try this idea submittedby Greg Leslie of Ponca City, Oklahoma.The basic idea is the same but the endproduct is more attractive, (see figure B)A rectangular piece of wood isused as a back plate with a number of wooden dowels protruding from the panel.Bear in mind when selecting and mountingthe dowels the amount of space that youwill need to allow to keep the plugs fromslipping through the dowels and stillproviding ample access to the patch cord

plug.The dowels can be mounted using glue and nails, screws from behind thepanel or by drilling holes in the panel to allow the dowels to be tapped intoplace with a hammer. Pegging the dowels into the panel seems to be thesturdiest construction.
