Hi Darren!
   I'd still suggest on going linuxsampler. There's a basic framework already. 
I'm not the skillful programmer myself, otherwise I'd like to help. But 
reasons for my point:
1. LS has already MIDI and audio drivers working.
2. LS offers a clear structure and an API to go by.
3. LS is in use already.
4. It already has two GUIs and is probably getting more.
5. MY OWN HERE: It's useable for blind people as well with relative ease.
6. I think the people there are a helpful and nice crowd.
   So six nice reasons to go that way. Perhaps you can also rely on code 
already written, like take a look and produce similar code in parts and there 
are people who know the framework and the matter. and it won't be another 
standalone app to maintain and adapt to every novation in the audio-world, 
like audio/MIDI driver APIs changing etc...
   One of the delicate remarks: If you don't get along well with LinuxSampler's 
license, you could make your "engine" a seperate package and say it's LGPL. Is 
tht correct? Some backup. No licensing discussion just a true or false 
statement. PLEASE! :-)
   Kindest regards
