That's very nice, and has exemplary documentation!

I didn't look at the internals yet, but it occured to me, that the
dependency on OSC probably could be factored out (if you'd want to) by
using Pd's standard [route]. The control messages would look like: 
"(name) grain env atk 12" then and would include a tree of [route]s.
To make that OSC-targetable one could use a separate abstraction. The
disadvantage would be that one looses pattern matching.
