The API is explained on this website: http://non.tuxfamily.org/nsm/API.html
Developers can build patches for their software to support NSM, as they
can do for JS and Ladish. At the moment only non-daw, non-seq, non-mixer
and yoshimi (patch available).
Atm their are more applications with JS support (Ladish supports ladi,
JS and NSM): http://tangostudio.tuxfamily.org/en/packages/unstable
But the development of JackSession API has more or less stopped because
of the fact that Torben has no time for Linuxaudio atm. Also it's not
realistic to expect many efforts from Paul in this area.
Moreover, NSM seems to have features JS lacks, but which could be a plus
when it comes to workflow (stop session, copy session, more easy to add
apps without session support into the session, possible to add apps
without JACK support to the session).
Also some people (Fons, Liles, Nedko) think that JS has it's limitations
and therefore they don't support it (Fons, Liles). NSM could gain wider
At first sight, NSM looks to me more promising then JS does, e.g. it has
more chance to become really useful and to get broad support in the
community (from the 'modular diehards'). But this is just a personal
feeling/ thought. If this is really the case, depends on the view of the
Linux-audio-dev mailing list
