We are now okay to design small bits of a sound engine using Mozzi. There are other libraries around, and what we learned will be used with those two. Indeed, these are patterns.

Let's check how we can control our Arduino-based sound engine using a standard protocol from a computer or other device. Indeed, it would be interesting to be able to trigger notes to change sound parameters using a computer, for instance.

Both are protocols used in the music and new media related projects and works.
