I don't know an alternative of this program. Despite it is in sleep mode since many years, this program is useful for audio engineering and musicians.

Rejecting for inclusion per our Package Inclusion Policy:

DOA (dead-on-arrival) packages are generally rejected from Solus. However, they may be included at the discretion of the project, if they provide unique functionality.

Not adding something that hasn't seen a release in 16 years.
