Yeah that's true - would be nice to do that offline ...
But this is also how it works in studios, you have your 
mastering-hardware and bounce it in rt (I am not such a studio expert, 
but at least in the studios I was it was done like this).
However, this should be no excuse ...

Yes, that's the second problem.
It took me quite some time to find some good sounding plugins (and some 
I had to fix) - but they exist.
Better visual feedback would be great too - maybe the upcoming LV2 can 
solve this ...

Okay, that's maybe a little bit OT now ;)
