For Stravinsky, the four-part array was something much simpler: it was a way of writing twelve-tone chorales.(16) Most of Stravinsky's twelve-tone music is highly contrapuntal in texture: the serial lines normally maintain polyphonic independence.
In this serial line, we assume that there are n workstations and between each pair of stations there is an inventory buffer.

Consider an application that samples an audio input at 8 kHz using a 10 bit ADC that converts the sampled audio to mu-law encoding (8 bits, used in telephone communications) and transmits this via an RS-232 serial line at 115,200 baud, as well as processing the audio signal and driving a VU meter showing current audio level.
