Hi, apologies if this is the wrong place to post, I can't find contact details for Frank Rittberger and I'd like to ask him some stuff about his brilliant program MIDI Locator. I made a track called Ogopogo which he liked, back in 2002ish, and I'd like to use it again for another project. Are you there Frank?

All the best, Dick Lee.
