The whole codebase is geared towards extendability for new features, so
that other ppl can add more sophisticated functionality later on (new
datatypes that can be sequenced, different editing-methods, other synths
and whatnot). The src is already GPL licensed. A public release will
need some polishing of the code though due to the short time-frame I am
working in which forces me to sacrifice some code-quality. The major
stopper for many devs will be the fact that I am developing using JAVA
(and a little of C for clocking, etc). For a community project this
choice makes sense though (excellent out-of-the-box dev tools, clarity
of code, easy cross-platform development...).

yeah. for me the show-stopper is the lack of a (good) pattern sequencer
and arbitrary pattern lenghts as well as unlimited f/x rows.
