This has been ignored for about 40 years; there could have been two editions
of every major CD and LP ever released, but there wasn't.

Good!  I'm glad to hear that.  I actually think that people's critical
listening abilities will evolve, just as they have in the past.


Hmmm.  Doing a good GUI is a large task, here made more complicated by
the fact that there is considerable math and physics involved.  It's going
to take some time to get it right.  I need to translate all of this to
something that is more readily understood by people doing real work in
the real world.

What I may do is that which was suggested by Jörn and Steve: Release what
I have and have some rounds with other developers.  Some ideas of what to 
do (user models) may develop.  I want to develop a user model that is
flexible, so it won't necessarily be recognizable as a mixer board or
any typical gear like that.  Although the development of software that 
looks like studio gear has eased the transition for many studio workers,
it isn't necessarily the best way to do things in the long run, just 
as the Windows O/S which emulated Apple's wasn't the best way to develop
computer software, even though it eased the path for a lot of people who 
worked in paper-and-pencil offices into using computers.
