Wow, thanks, this is very interesting. From a quick glance at the
Table of Contents it seems, that the author unfortunatly only explored
the similarities between "traditional" music making software as used
in a recording studio, i.e. Multitrack recorders. 

What I personally would find interesting would be a comparison of
instrument-like musik making software, that is, software that you can
"play" like an instrument compared to "playing" a video game. Good
gamers reach incredible levels of virtuosity with their controllers
(mouse, gamepad etc.) that really compare to the virtuosity of, say, a
pianist in some cases. 

Anyone knows any papers in this direction?
