Oh, i see. an interesting approach indeed. (although possibly limiting
in how many samples can be triggered)

that's too bad. I never really used it before. So, i guess i'm not
missing anything. lol.

Maybe i'll have a look, sounds interesting. thanks for the info.
Myself, i use linux audio - live in a band (or jamming/practicing by myself).
My approach goes as follows;
1. I run several Vsti (through wineASIO), Specimen for my sampling
needs, Jack-jack mainly for compression and limiting (and to equalize
volume-levels between applications)
2. they are then routed into sooperlooper - so that i can quickly in
"real-time", make grooves and phrases (multi-channel of course), or
just compose music in general.
3. then sooperlooper gets routed into tranches, so i can
beat-slice/remix my music/beats.
4. and finally back into Jack-rack, to keep the levels right, before
coming to system:playback.
(this is all automated by a single script, connections and all)
this allows me to have much of the functionality of the Kaossilator,
but with much higher quality sounds - and i can program it anyway that
i want. If you are not familiar with the Kaossilator, you can check
out my Youtube video(s). - this mix gets interesting after about a
minute and a half.
(the rest are tutorials from a few years ago, when they first came out)
