Like patches, maquettes can be dropped or created in a maquette editor.
Maquettes are like "containers", whose value is the produce of the whole set of values returned by its inner components. This container is called "maquetteobj", as shown in the Listener at the evaluation.
A maquette doesn't need a Tempout to express its value.
However, the calculation procedure of this value can be modified.
Maquettes can also exist without being expressed musically . This is the case when a maquette contains elements with no musical expression. Consequently, nothing happens when the maquette is played.
