Btw; one possible problem is the rate at which control parameters are
updated. For instance ecasound updates params every X sample frames, where
X is defined by -b:X. Having host determine the control rate is far from
ideal... especially as many people think that the whole concept of using a
static control rate (instead of sample-accurate parameter change events)
is a broken design (see linux-audio-dev archives for lots and lots of
discussion about this topic).
It would probably be easier to write the sequencer as a JACK client. It
doesn't really involve much extra work, and it provides you with much more

Well, the scaling is done by multiplying 32bit floats so it's actually

Unfortunately not supported at the moment, although not an impossible idea
at all. Basicly you'd just have to add a LADSPA controller source type
(-kladspa:x,y,z) that would use a LADSPA ctrl output to control some
target parameter (either native or another LADSPA parameter).
