[PD] Instrument Design Survey

I look forward to seeing the results of this. Maybe I am a bit
thick, but I found some of the wording a bit vague.
First thing was this question: "Please rate the following as your
priorities in instrument design where 0 indicates no preference and 3
on either side indicates a strong preference" What's the difference
between the 3 all the way to the left and the 3 all the way to the
right? Oh, I get it, there is a "Vs" in there.
Also, this is a bit vague: "Please rate the importance in the
features of a new musical instrument", is 1 more important, or 5? I
am guessing 5 is the most important.
Also, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the Mapping
Library for Pd, and any other mapping software you have encountered.

Using ReBirth is like trying to play an 808 with a long stick. -
