I agree that C++ is less productive than many other languages if 
you want to write the whole application in C++. It is quite ok 
for "engine parts", e.g. DSP etc.

But I don't think this syntax thing is going to be a big issue. 
Editors will colour them and it static reflection is most likely 
something library authors will use.

I though most people use Abelton Live? Although Cubase is 
probably better for composing than both Abelton and FLStudio.
