Have you looked at Aldrin? It also has the same level of control
over plugin parameters (I have just discovered how to do it!).
And is Linux native.. Buzz-like interface.

The only thing it can't do at the moment that you are doing is play 
puredata patches, although you could use the dssi-vst plugin and
load the pdvst I suppose. I think the author is trying to move
away from the dssi plugin idea though, so that songs written in
aldrin can be shared between people in the community without the
searching for plugins problem that beset Buzz.
