[LAU] Thinking about my new composition studio : a notation editor (ly-compatible?) which might use jack or ALSA midi correctly?

My basic question is : do you know a notation editor, which would also
be a MIDI sequencer, which presents itself in ALSA MIDI or better in
Jack MIDI, which supports jack transport, and which allows one to export
in lilypond *AND* to write correct drums notation (with custom drummap
if possible)?

My entire problematic follows.

I'm beginning to work on a new Sebkha-Chott album, and I've got kind of
a dilemma.

Several years ago, I was working with Rosegarden, for composition, which
was quite cool, but the drums notation was crappy, and it looks it's
always the case.
Moreover, it doesn't fit exactly the needs I have now :
- writing the notation for every organic musicians (bass, drums,
  guitars, horns, keyboards, vocals...) in a very readable and clean
- writing the sequences for every synths, drummachine, samples, and so
  on ; for this, I'm thinking about writing the sequences in the
  matricial sequencer (seq24 or non-sequencer) I'm going to use onstage,
  and triggered them from the notation editor/sequencer, so that I don't
  have to write those sequences twice.

That's why I'm looking for a MIDI sequencer/notation editor, which is
jack transport capable, and so on.

Any idea welcome!

See you
