Yes, I probably need to search for someone else outside the project.
Volunteers raise your hand please! :)

You can clone the git repo at least, if that's what you mean:

It's interesting for sure...

Imho working with all the JACK applications can be a pain on Linux, but
with nsm support, the experience is much better. And then standalone
applications are preferable in certain situations actually. If I would
need one instance of Zynaddsubfx, I would always grab the standalone
version. If I need more instances, I might switch to Carla instead and
grab the plugin.

On the other hand, I know people are using Rakarrack, because you can
launch multiple instances and chain them together to create something
