> what are the chances at this point for clm output a la cm2?

i now have processes transparently generating to audio and midi files,  
all you do is pass a file name to (sprout ...), in which case the  
scheduler opens a file and automatically kicks into faster-than-real  
time, so

   cm> (sprout (foo) )

runs in real time and

   cm>   (sprout (foo) "test.mid")

is like calling 'events' in cm2. it works for SndLib instruments too  
so clm audio file output is there right now! i havent relased a  
tarball today because i cant adquately protect againt errors under  
callbacks yet, i hope this will be working soon.

cmn uses common lisp's object system, that would be very difficult to  
port to scheme. but if  Fomus ever appears as a  C lib it would be  
"easy" to send data to it.  it looks like david is still hacking on it  
at sourceforge so i havent given up hope yet.

realtime sndlib instruments would be awesome. it might be possible, i  
may have a go at it over christmas.
