Yes I realise that patch loading is a problem, but I would personally find
a program that started up all the audio apps I was using, with the correct
audio and midi connections very helpful. If there was a notepad window to
remind me which patches to load, that would be even better (a bit clunky I
know, but pretty useful).

Yes, the laddca/lash thing never seemed to quite make it. I think the fact
that programs need to be laddca aware is a big problem with it, but if it
became universally used, it would be the ideal solution.
