Still somewhat OT but in the vein; My recent decisions to take my studio
to a primary focus of using Linux Audio were only with hesitation
because of VST availability...in this case, in a 64 bit environment. My
single requirement with a VST instrument is to have a 128 instrument GM
or GM2 softsynth, similar to Roland Virtual Canvas. The only thing that
comes close to filling this roll is fluidsynth with soundfonts. I am yet
to find sound fonts that suit me and compare.

Back on topic, the only benefit to me with a plugin that could do this,
or any other function for that matter, is if it uses less CPU or machine
resources as a result. The way that audio devices and apps / plugins lay
out in the jack patching system via Qjackctl or jack rack for example,
make almost anything routable to anything. Currently, I cant see the
benefit in this case to having a standalone application as opposed to a
plugin from a user perspective.

I dont disagree that users who want specific things in Linux audio
should be willing to encourage a developer by paying / contributing
something towards it. The Ardour development model seems to be forging
the path here with making what they develop of their own accord
available for free...but if you want something special developed ´right
now´, kick in some funds for the dev to swing his focus to that.

Nothing I ever obtained in life that was worthwhile, came quickly,
easily, or ´free´!

Thanks,
Russell
