    Maybe and no. The goal is to make it work with all current resamplers, but since I'm still working on the frontend, I can't say for sure if all of them will be compatible. The idea is to run them under wine on a Linux server. I did some testing and was able to at least invoke m4 and the default resampler remotely, but I couldn't get moresampler to work. Fortunately, Kanru Hua pointed out why, so I'm sure I can find a workaround.

    As for plugins, it's impossible to keep compatibility, since they are just Windows executables that get called by the main program. It is possible to implement their features directly on the front-end, though.

    It doesn't rely on UTAU to work, so VB6 support is not a problem.

    This is both a really scary and really exciting idea. Mainly because I don't have the most stable internet access right now. If you ever finish this and it goes well I'd highly recommend making a desktop version as well, as its very convenient for a lot of us to not have to halt our progress when our internet goes out. Either way, this looks like a good idea.

    Working on this is really really fun!
    Still working on the front-end, and I've made some progress.

    To keep compatibility with UTAU's file format, the track stored internally is always "UST compliant". That means that the front-end will automatically add, remove, resize and merge invisible rests whenever the user adds or modifies a note. In other words, no more rests!
    I still haven't finished horizontal movement and resizing, but since the last post I finished vertical movement, lyric editing and horizontal zoom. The code to support different time signatures is already there, and switching between tracks seems to be working now.

    Double clicking on a note opens this rudimentary note editing dialog.

    The grid can be zoomed in and out

    When drawing a note on a rest region, the rest will be split and a note will be added in between.

    Individual notes and regions can be moved vertically.

    I'm probably going to work on a feature to export rudimentary USTs before I tackle the backend. That would make it slightly useful as-is, I guess.

    I'm really interested in following the progress of this project, but I think it would be easier to do so in a separate thread.
