Smalltalk and Lo-fi Do-It-Yourselfers

Maybe it's just me, but I think Smalltalk would be the perfect platform to write custom music applications for all of the lo-fi do-it-yourselfers out there. All you would need to do is hook up to a low level midi and audio interface! Hmmm, I found a couple of open source cross platform libraries already...Now, I just need to get a cracking. I'm thinking Squeak would be excellent for this...=) What better way to introduce Smalltalk to more folks, but to the trackers, 8 bit, and other lo-fi folks out there. My next project is born! I'm thinking something like Buzz, but open source and much more user friendly (of course). I'm not thinking of mimicing trackers, but just provide a library for easier manipulation of music objects....Now, that I think of it, this sounds a lot like Siren doesn't it? Hmmmm...Decisions, decisions...=)
