The best compliment I can offer is the fact that I can write an ecasound
based project for around 5 years now. I don't think I could have been
able to do this unless ecasound was so versatile, stable and
full-featured. I can't recall anything that I haven't been able to do
with it.

I'm more of a musician than a technician, and I'm not a C programmer.
But there's so many hidden gems in ecasound's many features that I think
anyone with an imagination could spend a lifetime writing ecasound based
programs, front-ends and the like.

Thanks for the great programs and all the work you've put into it.
