Maybe off topic, but I've always liked the idea of patching physical
acoustic objects into modular synthesisers.  Like spring reverb, but with
arbitrary objects, like pianos... I never did get 'round to buying myself a
sound bug... to me personally, if I get audio out of the digital domain,
then it tends to be into the acoustic rather than analogue electric.  Just a
thought, but do you see a place for acoustic transducers in your system?
