Microsoft explorer 11 works well but earlier versions will not. The new
Microsoft browser "edge" in windows 10 is fine. You Tube is now using the
HTML 5 video player. We have attempted to use our audio players in Explorer 9
with some success. We were alarmed to realize that about 40% of our audience are
using Explorer 8 which is a bust. We encourage these users to update their

Bigger Screens are Better
Screen size is the deciding factor when you attempt to read and understand
information-rich web pages. A laptop, or better, a desktop computer are best
suited for meaningful reading and interaction. We know that people who attempt
to read our webpages and books on smart phones cannot enjoy the full benefit of
our best efforts. They have difficulty understanding the rich information we
provide and often cannot handle transactions online. They only get a small
sample of what we offer. We use dual 25" monitors in our office workstations and
enjoy lsitening to music and reading Web Pages and PDF files. To us, attempting
to read meaningful text on a smart phone or small tablet can become an exercise
The Persona Studio is built for electronic music production. A distinction
can be made between electronic recordings of musicians playing acoustic
instruments into microphones and recordings of instruments that have audio
outputs. As soon as an acoustic instrument's sound wave production in air is
captured by a microphone, the music path is electronic until the electronic wave
is returned to air waves by a speaker. We do have acoustic instruments and
microphones at Persona Studio, but 90% of the music recorded here is produced by
keyboards playing electronic instruments and other instruments such as electric
guitars that have audio outs. The language of music communication among our
instruments is MIDI. We have an advanced interest in how our brains process sounds and have generated a number
of interesting psychoacoustic effects. Our in house music production creates
audiophile quality recordings presented as CD's, DVDs, and singles and albums
