looks good to me Smile

Now I just need a Mac Intel box so I can run Windows on my Mac Teef
Initial feelings:

Feels like a cheap version of Acid - handles VERY much like acid in fact.

Nice is the way the snap/cursor goes to the grid up to a certain point, and then turns off when you're zoomed right in. I like that.

Not so nice is the midi - maybe I am missing something but where are the CC's, velocity etc? Baffled
