Nama or ecasound are both set up to do audio chains and can have effects
in them. I think ecasound would be the best for set and forget though, as
it would not need input once running and could be run with & to background
Ecarack looks interesting too. (comes with jackrack and takes a saved
jackrack config and runs it from terminal)
