i think that is why jack is so important; with jack, you can integrate hydrogen with rosegarden with jackrack and any other software that supports jack but it has the problem of the xruns and that it is almost not usable with some sound cards that are common (cheap) ...

so making software that is compatible with software that can unify the tasks (like jack) is the thing i think :-)

competition and innovation ??? .. i dont think so .... if all the projects would go to the same place innovation would came quite easily

Competition is the mother of innovation.
