Oh, never heard about that one. I just had a look at it and from the
quick glimpse I can point out following differences in Jacker:
* has a Cubase-style sequencer, with tracks assignable to individual
ports and MIDI channels, patterns concurrently playable, and full
keyboard/mouse support (see cheatsheet.txt).
* patterns have dedicated columns for note volume and commands. Allows
to do a bit more than just send MIDI.
* each pattern can have a different count of channels.
* supports different signatures than just 4/4, so measures like 6/8,
5/4, 3/4 are all possible.
* has Jack MIDI support only, but supports 16 JACK ports, and 16 MIDI
channels per port = 256 MIDI channels in total.
* loads/saves files in JSON, not XML, which makes generating and
parsing documents in Python ridiculously easy.
* has a compact UI.
* has been released as Beta right now, where the last Tutka release is
