Hi, Neil.

Very appealing project. I like this high-level approach, for me is
better suited when you're doing things/music on the fly, and makes
easier thinking and doing more with your artistic (brain-)side[1] and
less with your technical side[2] in this kind of situations.

Really nice installer, BTW. Easy and when it finishes you have Praxis
up and running. It just works.
Do you have some package already? A debian package for Wheeze would be
great. Would like to do some test to see if it could be included in
the next version of Musix.

Thanks, Neil.

[1] I want this fx now on my guitar, wanna sound like a bass for this
part, going to loop an A part to jam along...
[2] Is there X-runs?, maybe this patch is going to crash Jack, I have
to route this to this in order to do this...
