ok, looks like this here:

i changed the example file in tapeutape, so that the paths to the 
samples are showing to some samples in my homedir, and look  - it works 
very well  with seq24  and jack.
unfortunately, i really don´t understand the example file in tranches.
is tranches designed to control  a hardware midi  stuff (i don´t have 
any here)?

generally, please don´t get me wrong or nonconstructive, but for me 
editing the example file for being able to play samples is really 
what we need is some "specimen" mechanism, but i don´t know how heavy it 
is to design sth like that. ( i can imagine, it is not simple at all!)

for now, tapeutape works good and stable here, i ll play more with this!!

thanks for your work and the support,
