hmm. *of course* they sound a lot better than the monophonic stuff, but 
that's because the quality of the synthesizer is better. i don't see the 
point of this comparision. from my pov the relevant question is: does 
the (rather crappy imho) monophonic example (1st and 5th clip) improve 
when processed(3rd and 6th)? my answer is yes.

so yes, i do want to play with that code! :)

as a sidenote, even though i like the roland output better, it is not as 
good as the processed mono stuff in terms of avoiding 
in-head-localization, but hearing that takes a lot of abstraction 
because it's so much slicker in other respects.

as to writing a gui, i don't think you should bother yet. let people 
play with command-line tools, and if it needs a complex gui, wrap it up 
as a jack program later, or better yet, if the gui is simple (which i 
think it is), make it a LADSPA plugin and let the host app take care of 
the gui.
