I don't use qtecasound. I like console based working, since it's fast, X
uses a lot memory and I can use ecasound now over the internet.
If you would like to continue developing qtecasound, then I would say,
make it more something like 'modules' where you put lines inbetween to
connect them. Like a real effects system, where you have to connect all
the seperate modules.
