Although I appreciate not wanting non-essential information, the problem is
being 'on' *is* essential information - right up the chain. It is something I've
been tripped up by myself many times. For example you could be working on (say)
an addSynth filter, while a MIDI message comes along and switches the part off.
The engine still exists, and is fully editable but it's not going to do
anything. You need to know that!

Things that don't exist are error checked to prevent you trying to access
empty space, but I'm trying to keep the overhead as light as possible while
maintaining safety.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
