Yep, that's one of my major concerns. It would be awesome if *any* of
these programs were to include JACK synchronisation. In fact, for me to
do proper *multimedia* production on Linux, I would imagine it to be
essential in the long term.
The other concern is the process of creating computer-generated video
footage of music notation. Does anyone know of a way to do this, short
of creating lots of images of notation (with, say, different notes or
measures highlighted), and editing them into an animation manually?
I guess I could brush up my OpenGL and C and have a go at writing a
utility myself that converts MIDI into video notation...
Imagine a more serious version of that Nintendo GameCube Donkey Konga
bongo game... with proper notation, multiple instruments... Maybe you
could even plug in a MIDI instrument & it could grade your
performance... It could be an awesome music tuition tool!
I'm having far too many ambitious ideas today!
