Hi Fons,

I feel the same way you do about keeping Ardour the excellent DAW it is 
at the moment.  In the present incarnation (2.3), despite the new 
"features" it is the best DAW I have ever used.  If they detract from 
this to accommodate these new features, I am going to join the chorus of 

My main focus is the professional recording of orchestras, choirs and 
other natural (unplugged) music.

That aside, I had to do a sideline project, hacking together some music 
together for a Aerobics competition here in South-Africa.  I worked in 
Ardour (naturally) and then I wished I had these features available.  It 
was a royal pain to do the project, and I declined the next request 
because of this.  Now it would be much easier!
