I'm curious what motivates your design, having spent a 
long time writing one of my own using perl and tk. 


Did you ever have a chance to have a look?? Any feedback??

But then why did I write a front end of my when a rather mature 
Tkeca is available??

	- I had (and have) a few problems getting it to work.

	- By allowing many of the possibilities for Ecasound
	  there seemed lots of ways to get errors.

	- Too many windows makes my eyes glaze over, I 
	  find it hard to keep the big picture.

	- Ditto, with dialog boxes, for which I
	  have a special dislike.

 	- I'm not used to reading/hacking tcl

	- I wanted an autoincrement function for
	  recording several songs with the same

Are people's requirements and expectations really so
