My worry is that a lot of the communities these machines will go to,
will want to perform microtonal and xentonal music, but are a long
way from being algocompsynth practitioners, and the MIDI tweaking
involved is, well, lets say "non-trivial"... I saw Csound (presumably
wrapped by TamTam or *something*) as the way to enable that facility
transparently. Perhaps I am too optimistic?
