And having to do 'a fair bit of work' separating the crap from the
usable isn't going to improve a potential user's workflow either,
nor his first impression of what Linux Audio has to offer.
It's not just filters oscillating. I've seen delay lines blow
up, compressors going to infinite gain, and all sorts of things
producing loud bangs when connected, activated or coonfigured.
And those are just the potentially destructive 'features', we
are not even discussing basic processing quality.
Yet all this stuff gets distributed, listed on helpful websites
(look ! hundreds of plugins !), and nobody feels the need to
weed out the crap. Wonder why some people don't take Linux
Audio seriously ?
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
