Strange Cable Tracker Bar
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  To say that the response to my latest posting about the
'strange trackerbar' was overwhelming is an understatement.  More than
a dozen people from all over the globe sent me emails with varying bits
and pieces of information.  Others offered to send me more information
so I can create a series of web pages about the 'Cable Solo-Carola
Inner Player' system.

At this point in time, I'd rather wait until I have the web pages done
before posting more information about the system.  But suffice it to
say that it has a unique way of adding expression to the music via
special perforations in the Solo-Carola rolls that are 'read' by the
odd slots in the trackerbar.  And, from what I've gathered so far, it
seems like the Solo-Carola rolls are few and far between.

Thank you to everyone who helped me out.  It's times like this that
reinforce my strong belief that there's nothing like the Mechanical
Music Digest.  And, I'll quote the latest new phrase that I'm using
at Player-Care: "Together We Will Keep The Music Rolling".

I can't imagine accomplishing what's been done over these past 12 years
without the aid of the MMDigest.  We're all very fortunate to have such
a great team of dedicated people who keep this forum alive and well.
