As a programmer, I often build small tools for my own musical work. It occurs to me these might be generally useful, so I'm cleaning some of them up for distribution.
If it is not inappropriate and Gary does not mind an (occasional!) post -- and, of course, if you all have an interest -- I'll mention them briefly, here, if they're directly related in some way to the kind of work we do with the GPO. This is the first of them:
