Thanks for the links.  I've hunted down some of the Windows problems
mentioned in the documentation.  The chopping and crackling is mostly
gone.  I am playing with the Arp from that page, and I'm coming to the
conclusion that Pd just isn't for Windows XP.  Csound real-time gives
me some of the same problems, which I've never seen before.  I have 2
Ghz, 512M RAM, but maybe I'd need more.
I did manage to straighten out the help examples by raising my
latency, but that Arp still cuts in and out.  It plays all the notes,
but sometimes they're softer.  I thought maybe it was some sort of
portamento, but if it is I can't control it.  I'll give it a little
more attention but I'm not digging the results yet.
