I love the way Rui Nuno Capela's programs work and and I do also like the work 
flow of Qtractor, the consistency he provides across the different programs he 
makes is also a huge plus.  I will carefully consider Qtractor again for midi 
work, but I'm afraid it is not really what I'm looking for. As an Ardour/
Mixbus and Rosegarden user, I'm well served; and this will be even better when 
the upcoming Ardour 5 arrives. That said, I never leave Qtractor out of sight!  

There's something about the non distracting clean purity of the interface and 
and lack of bells, whistles and almost anything that attracts me to Seq24 and 
its forks. It's somewhat like grabbing a simple metronome vs. firing up a 
computer and start and click on stuff in order to get a steady 4/4 beat in 120 
when you want to practice an instrument.
