- Modified DrumSynt to correctly handle sample rates different than 22050 Hz.
- Modified syntmono parsing vs. tick routine so that some ticking occurs between each message. When multiple messages are waiting to be processed, the time between message updates is inversely proportional to the number of messages in the buffer.

- Fixed bug in MD2SKINI which prevented some NoteOff statements from being output.
- This distribution includes an example STK project, mus151, which demonstrates a means for keeping a user's personal projects separate from the main distribution. This is highly recommended, in order to simplify upgrades to future STK releases.
- Unification of the capabilities of STK across the various platforms. All of the previous SGI functionality has been ported to Linux and Windows, including realtime sound output and MIDI input.
- MIDI input (with optional time-stamping) supported on SGI, Linux (OSS device drivers only), and Windows operating systems. Time stamping under IRIX and Windows is quantized to milliseconds and under Linux to hundredths of a second.
- Various Sound Output Options - .wav, .snd, and .mat (Matlab MAT-file) soundfile outputs are supported on all operating systems. I hacked out the MAT-file structure, so you don't have to include any platform-specific libraries. Realtime sound output is provided as well, except under NeXTStep.
- Multiple Reverberator Implementations - Reverb subclasses of JCRev and NRev (popular reverberator implementations from CCRMA) have been written. Perry's original reverb implementation still exists as PRCRev. All reverberators now take a T60 initializer argument.
- MD2SKINI - A program which parses a MIDI input stream and spits out SKINI code. The output of MD2SKINI is typically piped into an STK instrument executable (e.g.
MD2SKINI | syntmono Clarinet -r -i). In addition, you can supply a filename argument to MD2SKINI and have it simultaneously record a SKINI score file for future reuse.
- Modifications to Object.h for OS_TYPE compilation dependencies. Makefile automatically determines OS_TYPE when invoked (if you have the GNU makefile utilities installed on your system).
- A single distribution for all platforms. The Unix and Windows versions have been merged into a single set of classes. Makefiles and Visual C++ workspace/project files are provided for compiling.
