Thank you very much for your input. I was not following every step exactly as in your tutorial. However I thought by knowing how to access the panels in your guide, it would help me to navigate through the following processes. I was actually trying to set up chord arrays to store notes (sound file info). However I have a big weekend coming up, and as soon as I can get my browser to display the new effects, I'll probably be spending most of time working with those. I may just learn to do arrays in js first.
Again thanks Ramone I'm glad you seem to understand some of my frustration.
