Finally: my first gig with GNU Linux!
It took place 2 weeks ago, and I'd like to share my experience with you.

It was basically a "reading" with live music where I played an 
electronic percussion (Drum Kat) and a Dan-Bao (a Vietnamese mono-string 
I used LinuxSampler for the drums samples, and Pure Data to change the 
drum-set presets, manage the scenes (show info, metronome, monitoring, 
notes) and to apply a reverb to the Dan-Bao.

To be able to achieved this, I must thanks all the devs of Pure Data and 
LinuxSampler (many thanks to Grigor Iliev), and obviously this list for 
the tips and ideas.

A little note about LinuxSamples possibilities: I played 8 drum sets 
(all loaded in the lscp), with a total of 92 channels (every drum 
instrument has his own fx send), and 4 instances of ladspa Calf 
Reverb... not bad, don't? :-)
