Yep.. the most simple way I can think of is to have a terminal app from
which you type in the path of the audio apps to launch, and then specify
the audio and midi connections. It then creates a bash script to
automatically launch the same setup for you in the future. Good if you use
the same set of apps linked in the same way. I would be able to write this
myself, I think, using jack_connect and aconnect.

I like the idea of it happening automatically, but this is really beyond
my powers at present! I will have a look at the stuff you suggested though.

Yes. I realise this. I think the apps need to give some info about state
on shutdown, and allow command-line loading of patches to work with this
