<earshot> CD release

<earshot> will soon announce the publication of an enhanced CD, promoting the project to a larger group of people and attracting new users to the <earshot> community. This enhanced CD will feature audio tracks created by <earshot> users.

The CD will also include the latest version of the <earshot> software, with new features that have been developed in response to our user base. Users will be able to edit and customize <earshot>'s sound generator - now called the AUDIO FIELD GENERATOR (AFG). The new version of <earshot> will enable the user to edit or customize this AFG, to determine different sets of parameters and therefore different forms of composition.

We hope that this enhanced CD publication will provide a firm platform for expanding <earshot>'s audience and user base and consolidating <earshot>'s position as a premier web audio tool.
