[PD] how to make a proportional canon

Dear Libero,

The short answer is to use a $1 variable when you want to name each 
abstraction (i.e. [myabstraction numberone], [myabstraction numbertwo], 
etc...), or use a $0 variable when you want to simply make a new 
instance and not worry about naming it (multiple instances of 
[myabstraction], where $0 will be replaced by a new random number which 
is unique to each abstraction).

I can post more about it later in if you're still confused... also check 
the tutorials I gave you in Helsinki, in particular 
(apologies to the rest of the list that I haven't published these yet... 
coming soon in coordination with the PD FLOSS Manual!)
