About Sonic-Pi and scsynth.exe

Hey guys, please note that I am new in programming, so my question is bound to have some stupidities either in a wording level or in some logical level, but please bear with me.

I’m working on adding some functionality to Sonic-Pi as my master’s thesis project. This requires me to receive audio from an instrument or sample in Sonic-Pi, process it in some external app and redirect it back to Sonic-Pi for playback, or even further processing via FX inside Sonic-Pi or the external app again. I had -very stupidly- decided to take care of the external app first, then fix its relationship with Sonic-Pi when it is finished but now I see that Sonic-Pi works very differently than i had -very unqualifiedly- guessed. Apparently, SuperCollider handles all audio processing and also playback so it seems I have some work (and studying) to do with SuperCollider as well.

The question I was meaning to ask was, has the SuperCollider.exe that Sonic-Pi uses been “hacked” (I may be using it wrong) in any way? Or will I be facing problems if I work with the SuperCollider source code.

Thank you guys so much in advance.
