Duo-Art Roll for Examination
By Wayne Stahnke

This note is in response to Robert Pintar's recent posting, asking for help in understanding the Duo-Art mechanism.

It sounds to me like Robert is just getting started understand the Duo-Art mechanism. There is a great deal that is not understood, even by people who have studied it for a very long time I hope he will be able to quickly come up to speed and investigate the unsolved problems, and not just cover well-trodden ground.

Robert, in response to your posting I have borrowed and scanned Duo-Art Roll 6878, the second part of George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," and I have reconstructed the master roll from the scan. I think your careful examination of this roll would answer many of your questions, such as (for example) the relationship of snake-bite timing to note timing. If you will send me your e-mail address, I will be happy to send you a copy of the master roll.

Welcome to the group. I note that you work for Hewlett-Packard, and that means that you have deep technical skills. We are all looking forward to your contribution.

Wayne Stahnke
