the "tot" extra has some functionality in regards to printing the output of tcl, if you want a more direct approach you could roll own external, a very simple one, with someting like
char buf[50];
sprintf(buf, "d%x", (int)x);
x->x_s = gensym(buf);
pd_bind(&x->x_obj.ob_pd, x->x_s);
outlet_symbol(x->x_obj.ob_outlet, s);

--once its 'bound', you can then do from tcl:

pd "x[list ${self}] playnote [ pdtk_enquote $notetoplay ]"

to send stuff to its outlet...theres simlar techniques for floats, lists etc but i'm pasting...
