Well of course you have to make a change to your text file, save it and
rerun csound on it. Maybe the emacs mode and friends make things more
interactive, but the old way works great for me. But I must admit that
this is probl. only because I use realtime input from keyboards with
assignable potmeters 90% of the time. If we're talking pure csound
driven by an .sco file I'm working much too slow. In fact I never
completed one single project in pure csound.
