I've had the opportunity to use this program in the Migratory Bodies
workshop - it's fun to play with and you can do lots of interesting
things with it - but it's not much more than a glorified visual effect
system like the ones you see in clubs/raves. To put sound onto the
system i went through Premier - so it was quite ardious to do. This
however could be 'cause I was using it wrong!! Try contacting Per Platou
- he was my mentor!! Also, you could try using a program called Imagine
which has 4 or 5 (I can't remember which) layers of images/ text and i
think sound as well, again Per is the man to talk to.
I hope this helps
