as far as grace goes its simpy sending score info to csound -- you  
can sprout processes that do this in realtime or  just eval loops etc  
to send data. either way grace is calling csoundScoreEvent to do  
accomplish this. The csound port's Configure dialog lets you specify  
the inits you want to pass to csound along with a CSD file so it  
might be as simple as specifying a sound file instead of realtime  
audio (sorry im new to csound api so im note sure)  if this level of  
support wont let you do what you want then if you can tell me else i  
need to provide i can try to add it in.
