in short, qtractor internal process flow doesn't play well with direct
feedback loops, like connecting any of its output ports to any of its
own input ports.
problem is that input buffers are always read before any output signal
is produced, while on the same process period cycle. iow, you're
consuming what hasn't been produced yet. that's why you'll probably get
silence, at best.
problem, if you call it that way, can be solved artificially by
inserting an "all-pass" jack client in between qtractor outs and ins. of
course this will introduce an inevitable period latency. but its the
only way to workaround the issue.
i'm afraid Jeremy did present an interesting proof-of-concept exercise
re. using the ladspa vocoder in qtractor. afaics, he didn't said it was
of any use, let alone practical :)
