Three alternates (A, D amd E) in the Solo book were not included in Otto Mason SH (aka Automation), the Soft Horizon digitization of Automation. Soft Horizon used the alternates instead of the "regular" letters for A, D and E in their font. .The SH omitted A is in the uppercase, and the omitted D and E are in the lowercase. I also added slightly different B and T in the uppercase, and a W in the uppercase as it appeared in the Solo book. Also added alternates for L, O, S, U, V and Y based on an image of an amplifier faceplate where the font is used [Hotlinked image removed. Use mirrored image instead] It is possible that these might have come from another MICR type font, especially the L and U. Anyway these are all in the uppercase and the L and U adapted to fit into the scheme of things.

This D is similar to the D on the amp faceplate and is a mirror of the regular D. I cannot tell whether the regular D was flipped in an image editor or it is a real alternate character. It could also have come from another font. - 22 [....quoted text snipped....]
