CLM is built into Grace. look in the Audio>Instrument Browser for the
list of clm instruments you can load/edit/play.
You can tell Fomus to write a midi file in addition to a .ly file.
perhaps this is what you want to do?
Then you can play the resulting file using the Audio>Play Midi File
(ybut our need the newest Grace to do this i think, and ive not built
it on windows yet)
