I did apt-get on ubuntu and got 0.39. I got another answer for online
docs and posted the link on the puredata.info site.

Cheers! I read section 2 of the PD docs on the train over the weekend,
so I feel I have things a little clearer now. What I am working to
achieve is a flexible interface for a loop sampler. I will be using a
foot pedal for live performances with PD.

So I want a bunch of buttons that do *multiple actions, depending on
the current state of the sampler*. So for example I gave:

* in stop mode, if I press the button we go to record/play mode
* in record/play mode, the button closes the loop and stops playback.

I will need a few different states, such as

* playing
* overdubbing
* stopped
* recording

that will be tied to 1 of a few different parallel samplers (probably
around 4).

Thanks for the help and welcome!
