Thanks. I have never had it die on me while performing live sets and
once you understand the routing paradigm it's relatively straight
forward to use.

I would love to be able to use two mice at the same time though. That
would allow me to fade volume and tune eqs/fx just like on a real desk.

I have studied my habits while mixing and I very rarely have a need to
tweak more than two knobs at once. Except for my delay pedal... but that
can scare people ;)

It will do this one day. Currently ardour, jack-rack, ssm, ams, pd,
hydrogen or galan would be my recomendations to explore for more
advanced control.

I agree. Hydrogen is one of the nicest LAD apps to look at and it seems
very intuitive to use from my brief attempts.

I have half finished the addition of custom sliders to the interface
based on code from galan but haven't had time to work on it for at least
two months.

What I really need is for someone to finally release the Liblag - Linux
Audio Gui Library.

Then we could attach our backend code to any gui lib and it should "just

We already have a starter for the automatically generated JACK ports
menu in the jamin and jackEQ apps. Galan has the code for knobs and
sliders. Steve has code for meters.. That's gtk2 covered.

Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before the arrival of U.S. troops.
