Ardor 3 doesn't fit to my needs. I never tested Giada, it doesn't look
very promising, but I tested LMMS. LMMS is completely unusable for my
needs. Personally I don't know any musician using such software on any
OS, I know this kind of thing from techno consumers, who play a little
bit with their laptops.

It's a very important feature available by all Cubase versions for the
Atari (and for Windows) I know.

Did you test energyXT? I never tested it, but years ago I heard that
people like it. Perhaps it already does provide what you want.

No, regarding to the mute-able tracks, Bitwig perhaps does provide them.
I'm missing it for the FLOSS Linux software I'm using.

I'm just sceptic about the hype of Bitwig. At the moment it's not
available and we read the report, it has got technical issues. VST and
AU seems to be the dominating plugin protocols. What is about LADSPA and
DSSI?

I don't understand the Jack related thing. Isn't it possible to use the
ALSA backend? The author has written about a different audio binding,
than Ardour does use.

Do you believe that they will fix all bugs soon? Do you believe that you
can sync it with another Bitwig perfectly by a network? Don't you want
to have LADSPA and DSSI support? I don't need VST and AU support, I'm
only using LV2, LADSPA and DSSI plugins.

I suspect you prefer a studio in the box, instead of hardware equipment?
There is so much talk about plugins, but I'm missing features to control
hardware gear with a sequencer. With the Atari I edited sounds by SysEx
editors included to Cubase in real-time, for the Roland MT-32 (not a
toy, if you can use it as real pseudo analog synth) and Oberheim
Matrix-1000.

As an Ubuntu and Arch user, I'm also very sceptic about the idea to
provide Ubuntu packages or an USB stick solution only. On Ubuntu Studio
lists all kinds of rumors about Ubuntu's future are discussed. At the
moment the situation for Ubuntu already is borderline.

Ralf
