My composition workflow is based on loops - starting by creating rythms in

I quickly cheked the feature list for Non-DAW on their website.
Although the feature you described is listed, it doesn't really say if it
eases the composition part. It looks to me like you need to have a clear
idea of the song structure.
What if you would like to try out different arrangements quickly - can you
confirm or infirm if that is the case?

My composition workflow is bas=
ed on loops - starting by creating rythms in Hydrogen and recording a few d=
rum loops in Ardour, creating a bass line with amSynth or ZynAddSubFX and r=
ecording a few bass loops in Ardour, recording some guitars in Ardour and c=
reating some samples from that...

The difficulty I'm having in Linux is to create com=
position from those loops.In Ardour is is time consuming to reor=
ganise the loops to test new order/composition (because Ardour is not meant=
for that).

My idea of a workflow would be to have a tool to try ou=
t the different loops in different order and "jam" with them to s=
ee what works and what doesn't.
Non-DAW has better features for dealing with looping=
regions/clips than Ardour does. You can set a loop point on any region, af=
ter which adjusting the region length adjusts the number of repetitions.
