Check out for a feature list of Ardour. There's not much
midi yet in Ardour. I never used Cubase. (Maybe you can tell us Linux
users later, if Cubase can do everything that Ardour can do?

Snd can do much more than Soundforge. For example it is artificially
intelligent. And you can run Snd in Pd. Try that with Soundforge. One
really cannot compare these two programs. In fact, you cannot compare
Snd to anything else. Check out the Snd manual for a glimpse of some
of the things Snd can do.

Not true at all, where did you find that?

Yes, they do well. I do well, too, thanks. ;) But what does "do well"
mean here? Linux is the kernel of the operating system we use. Vst is
a specification for audio plugins by Steinberg. They don't have much
in common.

Not through Jack, but you can use the ALSA sequencer instead to route
Midi between Pd and Ardour just fine. But as I wrote, Midi in Ardour
is still quite limited. But you can use MusE and Pd together very
well, for example.

My favourite is Pd.
