I've only really used ecanormalize and ecawave, but they have both been
extremely useful. Oh, one (hopefully) simple but useful feature to add
to ecawave would be a "copy to new" function, which would take the
selection and copy it into a new session. I've found that things like
chopping up beats get very tedious without this.

Good idea.. it would be nice to have a record button, so you could just
click 'record' and the output would be tee'd to a specified file. And
maybe a 'record input' to allow adjusting of effects setup later. But
maybe that's too much :)

They all sound like good ideas!
