Yes, actually you can write your own code for Kyma, but it is DSP code and
not C. I don't really know much about it though... That was mentioned in

but not Orville.
I can see using Max and Kyma. I don't think that Kyma can do all of the
things that Max can do invovling the control and creation of MIDI data.
