And it might not be, in which case it's bash to the rescue. Here's the 
shell script I use to launch my sequencer, QJackCtl, Jack-Rack, JOST, 
and QSynth:

xdosemu -input \r big.bat &
qjackctl &
sleep 7
jack-rack /home/dlphilp/racks/favoriteplate.rack &
qsynth &
jost &

The big.bat is a DOS batch file that runs in DOSemu to launch my 
sequencer. QJackCtl and QSynth can be configured for autostart and 
autoconnection, plus the PatchBay in QJackCtl can recall all 
connections. See the help options for each program to see what can done 
at the command prompt.

Btw, the sleep command (for seven seconds) is necessary to keep the 
other apps from loading until JACK has been started.

I named the file sequencer.scr and added it to my Fluxbox music apps 
menu. I click on the menu entry, everything happens. It's not LASH, but 
it'll do until all my favorite Linux audio apps have been LASHed.

Also btw: I think all the apps that the original poster wants to run 
*can* be controlled by LASH.
