I had an idea of playing with granular synthesis in Overtone but I had no luck making t-grains ugen work. In the same time I found an excellent PD project called Granita courtesy of Lorenzo Sutton which did everything I wanted.
The problem with PD is it's approach to UI construction which is a real PITA. On the other hand Overtone's way of doing things just rocks. I like to sketch whatever I make with emacs-live and nrepl. It's so much better then anything else for a mixed live-coding, notational composition approach to music making. Both PD and Overtone support OSC communication. My solution is to control PD's patch through OSC from Overtone.
