One thing that ardour, renoise, qtractor and lmms are missing when 
compared to AL is the sampler interface which is a core interface in the 
live performance model that AL provides.

Seems like a big omission to me that distances these apps quite severely 
from the AL model (for live performance) for anyone coming from that 
system. Probably also why some people compare lmms to fruity loops 
instead of AL.

I imagine it implies the apps are not designed for live object/sample 
based performance for AL users.
