Ok, so appart from the discussion on the second point of my mail (maybe
it was better posted to LAD, sorry for that), what about the first:

i.e. if there's some hacky way to do it in the current JACK system? I
guess this could easily be done with the help of the usual suspects (sc,
pd), and I'll look in to it when I have some time (in sc I think I only
need to understand how to make an Ugen from the incoming midi data, and
then just play it with .ar instead of .kr... I'm more clueless on
the final audio signal -> midi conversion)... other ideas with other
