As someone who only uses the console, I can tell you that CLI-based
music applications are pretty scarce: if it weren't for ecasound, the
JACK utilities, and a few other tools, life would be pretty bleak
indeed. For example, I recently wanted to have a poke at synths: there
is a staggering number of synths available for Linux (modular synths,
emulators, you name it), but finding one that doesn't require a GUI is
quite a challenge. I'm not saying whether this is good or bad, just that
I don't think very many people still use the console for music-making,
except a few old-timers and people unable or unwilling to use the GUI.

As far as the CLI vs. GUI argument goes, I see it that way:
- GUI is like geting what you paid for instantaneously.
- The CLI is like investing so you can buy something you might not
otherwise be able to afford.
