Definitely -- in fact, I'm sitting here at the office thinking about how
I could do something similar under Linux. I'm thinking:

* run audio from mic in to Rakarrack's pitch-to-MIDI converter
* run the MIDI in to a synth
* run the synth audio and the mic audio in to a Rakarrack's vocoder as
carrier and formant, respectively

Sounds like a hell of a lot of fun to me! I can't wait to try it out :)

I don't think there's any point worrying about music production getting
"too easy" or "too accessible" -- the ship probably sailed on that when
Tascam released the Portastudio, or when Dave Smith and friends created
MIDI. People have been making trite music with the best equipment money
can by for years, and others have been making interesting music with
toys and junk for just as long. If this helps people express musical
ideas that they'd been unable to express beforehand, then that's
fantastic.
