Why cant I leave a review for this? I am new to KVR.... just signed up.

Anyways, I purchased this and was kinda disappointed. Unfortunately, the general MIDI editing itself is just too bad.

Cant copy+paste single notes or select and drag+drop them around like you would expect it to any other MIDI sequencer. That makes me personally dislike the workflow a lot.... :(
Damn, should have spent more time with the demo. My bad.

Also, the lock function is buggy sometimes. I don't know why that is, but even though a MIDI pattern is locked, .

single notes will be still modified every once in a while for some unknown reason. Also, I wished you could lock just certain areas in a random MIDI pattern. Sometimes it gives me some really cool melodies but I just like the first part of the pattern. Then I would like to lock that area and continue generating other notes so I can step by step create my own random melody. I am a little disappointed, because for me this is some basic stuff that everyone should realize after playing around for a while with this plugin.
