Actual dance floors musics needs a very large handset of tools that also require
best technologies for avoiding sound loss
and having the sound responding correctly through all sound systems.

We use to call the set of composer tools a Workstation.

It's usually easier and sound better with mixing vinyls rather than playing
live, that's why in almost all dance floors there are DJ's only.

If there would even have something like a kind of virtual mixer, Pd would have
his place at least for mixing.
This kind of tool require a graphical interface, obviously, for manually
controlling the file mixing, and this is where a good tool could make the

I don't doubt that a lot of the several technologies have been developped
through different patches that works more or less, but without a kind of wrapper
for all those patches
it doesn't look like a human job to glue all the stuff together in a musical
piece that would sounds as big as we use to hear when we go to dancefloors, or
when we turn on the pop radio.
