Many of the WAITS system docs are on-line at bitsavers.org under
dec, but as far as I can tell, none of the music stuff is on-line.
I made an extensive search yesterday for anything related to
music 4, 5, and 10 (geez, it's really annoying that pop music
has taken over those names), and came up almost empty.
There is one SAIL archive, that JC and I tried to penetrate
with advice from Les Earnest (saildart), (we were trying to
get at JC's Stria sources for that set of articles in CMJ), but
the keeper of those files is unresponsive.  Why make such
an archive, tell everyone, and then lock it up?  Anyway,
I don't think any of the CCRMA-specific stuff is available
anywhere.  I saved it from the crash of the F4 with a modem
and a telephone line dribbling stuff into a NeXT optical --
a story worthy of Charles Dickens, or maybe Steven King.
15 years later, Fernando somehow read those opticals, probably
the last man on earth who could have done it.  We lost 
a bunch of the opticals in the Knoll renovation -- I last
saw them in my bookcase...
