Man, that has been my dream for a good while!

Ardour is a fine multitrack but no MIDI, at least on FreeBSD. And FBSD itself 
has lots of issues with MIDI.

Besides that, there is the driver problem with most professional sound boards.

I am going to attempt something a quite bit out of my league which is try to 
port the alsa drivers for my echo Gina3G board to FBSD. If I can manage to do 
that, then I believe the rest will fall on my lap by gravity. 

I hope I don't blow up my desktop.

I'm eager to read the replies to the OP.
