That's the sad truth, but it was always _close_. Because of this you

I see a point. I must admit that I didn't delve deep enough into the
old interface to really miss the double-hits. Maybe you're even right.
What I really liked was the context-sensitivity of the interface,
including keys (do I remember wrongly? I have to get lilv compiled to
test the git version).

Actually I'm embarrassed how small my knowledge of traverso is because
I never managed to get a recording session done with it. At first it
was too unstable (yeah, crashes back then) and then it was missing
features from Ardour (working effects and routing). But I always wanted
to have a "complete" version to try.

But that's the fun part, isn't it;-) Given time, I for sure could help
out on that front, but, well ... next year? :-(

I hope not. Heck, you could even name a price (or set up on one of
these crowdsurfing sites) for "finishing traverso". I can imagine
tossing in 50 or even 100 € when I knew that it would result in
something usable that has a chance of being more stable than ardour (by
virtue of being smaller ... somehow).

Being busy is good business, so congrats on getting it flying (eh ...

If it has the current features stabilized and is indeed usable with
plugins and routing, this is a great point to get started for others to
add little features / improvements. in the middle of a big rework it's
not so attractive ...

Alrighty then,
