Problem with JACK is that you can only wire LMMS Midi in or master out, you can't define an instrument to come from outside or output a FX channel or something.
If it exists and I missed it, I'd be very grateful to know how, if not, this is one of the main feature requests that need attention imo.

Also we need vertical zoom in automation, because automating different wobble speeds at the moment is a nightmare. An option to make it a logarithmic scale would also be nice.

Could (monophonic) portamento somehow fit in with the chord/arpeggio
features in the instrument functions? That way it would be done for
all instruments at once, or at least for those supporting pitch bend...

Possible integration with Ardour should IMO be through JACK. Multiple
sound outputs and syncing to the JACK transport would go a long way.


>> (4) Splicing of samples in the sample track

Like crossfading? Could be done with volume envelopes. Maybe we need a
simple sample editor, where you could adjust volume, stretching and
stuff like that. Dragging is cool, but I'd rather click at a point
along the waveform and lock that to a song position. Either by
stretching the sample _or_ adjusting the tempo, both should be possible.

I wonder if the only reason for this is that the control for the fx
channel is in the instrument control window, which doesn't exist for
sample tracks?


Here's a few things I'd like to see:

(9) An integrated FM synth, e.g. Hexter (DSSI plugin) or DeicsOnze
(from MusE). Maybe even simpler, a 2-operator thingy like an Adlib
emulator. Or does everyone use VST nowadays?

(10) Make instrument filters follow the note(s) being played,
preferably with some offset (+/- an octave or 2)

(11) An envelope to control anything that's automatable? Either as a
new envelope in addition to the old ones, or as a new kind of
controller to put in the rack + trigger outputs from the instruments.

(12) Patterns with a bassline could use some kind of transposition
feature. I guess automating the instrument's base note works, but it
isn't very user friendly.

I might get my hands dirty on items (9) and (10), but the others
aren't even on my horizon for now.
