Currently I'm running Pro Tools and hardly using Linux because I
cannot fully implement the above work flow. However, once again, for
the 50th time, Pro Tools is crashing due to Win XP updates and mucked
up Waves software. I hit these lost weekend points with Pro Tools and
Windows and keep coming back to Ardour really does work, and removes
so many limitations I have in Pro Tools since I'm not a 192/HD/Accel
user, but I don't know how to make the above work flow work.

I've got Muse open right now. It's not following the play button on
QJC. I've tried Rosegarden but it's pretty resource intensive when I
run LS on the same machine.

Just poking around looking for ideas. Linux needs Ardour to add MIDI support...
