Hey Dan!

"Saving projects is only tricky if you use the modular approach versus
instrument plugins hence this isn't really a problem for A3 and qtractor."

True, but since there are very few plugins, most power of Linux Audio today
is not in its plugin collection ;)

Hi LV!Nice and interesti=

"Saving projects is still a huge problem. In addit=

a workable solution, so we'll see how this works out in the long run.<=

LMMS seems to be the only game in town for those who want to save full proj=
ects by just clicking "Save" and not having to install and config=
ure a "session manager". I must admit, by the way, that I have no=
t followed LMMS recently."

Saving projects is only tricky if you use the modular a=
pproach versus instrument plugins hence this isn't really a problem for=
A3 and qtractor. Aside from LMMS, MusE and sunvox have a few integrated in=
struments so they don't have this problem either (if you stick to the b=
uilt-in synths for Muse only - sunvox doesn't handle plugins) and prett=
y soon MusE should gain native VST support to further improve this situatio=
n.

Your article has reminded me of my one and only JACK co=
mplaint/ feature (yep - just one!!!) request which I filed a couple of year=
s ago now but is still to be addressed:http://trac.jackau=
dio.org/ticket/202

I'm surprised others haven't been asking for mo=
re descriptive 'device busy' error messages from JACK as for many y=
ears this has been my only issue with JACK - it doesn't start and you d=
on't know what process is preventing it doing so. Quite often I'll =
not bother doing the detective work and just reboot but that is hardly idea=
l so I think this small addition would make JACK (and qjackctl) and as a re=
sult Linux audio much more user friendly.

Your thoughts Mr Davis?On Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 9:24 AM, Louigi Verona <louigi.verona@gmail.com> wrote:
