Page 91 ï~~The Architecture and Musics Abstract: Cmix toolkit for synthesis substantially from most synthesis packages in t accumulates mainly by mixing to disk. It has a C-like syntax which dispatches commands } functions written in C, and receives values in re the system is that it provides relatively 2

(I have worked with as virtues of this architecture is that it is easy to start, sto recording session it is customary to avoid re-recording because a few errors occurred. In Cmix it is easy to accu emulate the format of a multi-track recording session everything heard at once. The second design principle is to minimize the use o availability of Unix tools.
