One of the other potential uses for a text only environment is to run your
synth on a dedicated or virtual server using jack with the dummy sound
device. That way you get the added benefit of leaving your synth
environment always on. When you feel like making some tunes just connect
to your icecast stream and start making music. You could even do it all
from the beach on your laptop. Let the server do the heavy lifting for
you.

I have found that a single core machine with 2GB of RAM is enough to be
practically useful.

Of course you pay a monthly fee for this privilege but if you find a good
hosting company that doesn't charge too much it's a lot cheaper than
paying for studio time and may be more viable than using a band room for
practicing too.

Plus it's real easy to share your progress with your band members and
friends.
