There is MusE 0.6.0pre3 that worths a try. (beware the current pre4 release
has a annoying bug).
I like MusE, imho it is the only linux sequencer that is gowing toward
something reliable and professionnal.
The problem concerning your project is that MusE cannot edit score. All
you can do is export a midifile and print it in another tool that will do the
MusE works, you can edit notes, there is sometimes a silent note here but it
is rare and i have the impression that it is the Alsa SBlive driver not that
MusE can even play audio tracks along the midi tracks, i am working on a song
with a few audio tracks and it works ! :)
I won't do any fancing audio editing though but it seems to be stable.
What important is to be able to edit your work on a stable sequencer using
external midi synth or onboard synth, then export the midifile to print it if
If you want to be sure your midifile will play right for live sessions,
manage to render the tracks in audio (using MusE or timidity or iiwuplay) and
just play live on it.
PS: anyone using Bhrams ?
