Alsa Modular Synth.

It can host LADSPA, has own modules (utilities like mixers and
synth-related stuff) and every parameter can be controlled via MIDI.

To wire the parameters with MIDI-controllers first connect your
controller-device or software with ams using the MIDI-panel of qjackctl,
then open menu/view/control center.
As you turn a knob or move a slider its ID lights up in the left panel
of this window. You can now mark the ID and a Parameter-ID of your
liking, click "Bind" to connect them and don't forget to save the patch
before closing ;-).

The website looks a bit abandoned but fortunately Malte Steiner has
taken over the maintainance/developement of ams, so we can hope for a
great future for ams...
