Re: two-way synchronization (live or otherwise) between Lilypond and a D

About four years ago, I did almost all, if not all of your listed
steps with Lilypond and Ardour.

I wrote a multi-voice score in Lilypond, converted the score
to MIDI, loaded this MIDI into Ardour, and then assigned
the various MIDI voices to various synthesis plugins.

The process did include editing the original Lilypond score
and thus creating new MIDI voices that were used
to replace MIDI voices that I had previously imported
into Ardour.

The process worked very well, and I would certainly
work this way again if I needed to do such a project.
