On paper I've always thought Jazz++ looks very interesting. It has
some feature for writing drum parts that are much more intersting than
matrix drum editors. You can write rults for patterns that tell it to
always play on one beat but to play randomly on another beat some
percentage of the time. I found the language hard to really make work
but some of the stuff it did was quite interesting.

Jazz++ not actively developed anymore. (I think.)

Linux lacks for one really all encompassing audio/MIDI application for
recording and composing.
