Mmmm, perhaps you may explore the possibility of driving zynaddsubfx via a 
midi sequencer with a tracker style interface.


Shake tracker is a MIDI sequencer aimed to all the tracker lovers who 
allways wanted to go midi, while keeping all sort of cool tracker features.
Shake tracker has a tracker-like interface which supports patterns, orders 
and IT-like effects.
Each track (midi channel) is subdivided in columns of it's on, so this adds 
an extra layer to pattern editing. Note on, Noteoff and velocity are also 
implemented the usual way, while the effect column understands most of IT 
commands with similar parameter ranges. Finally, there's also a 
controller/effects column and plans for adding "paintable controllers"
