Hi there,
I tried building muse to give it a spin today, but the build failed:

[ 90%] Built target core

Anyway, upfront a couple of questions/suggestions.

- Part Import/Export <- what does this refer to?
- Several types of audio tracks
      * Audio inputs
      * Audio outputs
      * Wave tracks    <- those sound weird, I hope I don't need to
create separate tracks for everything
- the following link (found here:
  http://muse-sequencer.org/index.php/Download) is more distracting than anything:

you seem to have switched to cmake but half way it seems. The build
instructions are rather weird and unusual for cmake.
creating build, cd'ing there and invoking cmake .. is not how it's
usually done.
Usually you configure using 'ccmake .' when you build manually or
-DCMAKE_BLA (which you do use) for automatic building.
A DESTDIR is a good thing to have since often enough software
is build in a chroot and hence "make install" as root will fail if it
tries to install into the real /usr.

Well, I'm looking forward to using a hopefully improved muse :)
