The specimen GUI is written in C/GTK+. It is my understanding that 
LinuxSampler is C++/QT.

Peter already said that he doesn't like QT and he doesn't like C++. 
That is more then enough reason for Pete to say away from

You are drastically understating the complexity of what you are 
suggesting Pete should do.

Patrick, please don't take this the wrong way, I'm really not trying
to be offensive, but you, as someone who doesn't code (please correct 
me if I'm wrong) it seems a little strange for you to be handing out 
this advice. Like i said, I wasn't trying to be offensive with that 
statement. I do know that you make large contributions to documentation, 
evangelisation and probably also things like bug reporting.

Everything that I've learned about computers I have boiled
down into three principles:
  PC/Windows: You think it won't work, and it won't.
  Macintosh: You think it will work, but it won't.
  Unix: You think it won't work, but if you find the right
        guru, you can make it work.
