You don't need to be very silly to do this. If you have

  sequencer -> synth -> audio recorder
then if the sequencer and recorder are the same Jack client
you always get a loop. But the final result (provided there
are no other connections to the synth) is still defined: one
period of extra latency.



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
