A decently-written review. One of the features I am still hoping to see in a future release is a more sophisticated pattern browser that organizes the step patterns into more discrete groupings; tagging would be nice, too. Another nice feature to see in a future release would be a facility to convert back and forth between step patterns and pattern-trigger patterns (why? because only step patterns allow customizable velocities).
Thanks, Bro (or Sis), I demoed this for a few weeks and worked hard on providing some useful comments. I see your points and suggest you submit these requests to the developer. He's been very responsive when I contacted him with my feature requests. Mostly, I would like to have a simple on-board piano sound (or a selection of instruments) to make opening and syncing to a DAW optional. This would make it faster and easier to get an idea down.
I previously communicated my feature requests to Hauke, so he is aware of them. If other folks were to express interest in the same features I have requested, he might be more apt to look into developing them. Regarding having on-board instrument sounds, Windows users have the option of using the CoolSoft Virtual MIDI Synth with Sundog. I am not sure if there is something analogous out there for Mac users.
