At last, LV2 allows us to see nifty GUI's like the ProTools plugins.

Now all we need is a parametric EQ that allows one to click on the curves and put dots and pull the leptokurtic distributions around and make them platykurtic and in that kind of way change the sound in real-time like in ProTools and Ableton.

Actually, JAMIN already has the functionality to do that in the GUI, and it's great. I wonder if there's a way to implement that sort of thing in LV2?
