Default

+ Hackey Trackey Integration ==> Shift + Double LMB opens a Hackey Trackey on the selected track at the current song position.
+ Added optional grid snapping
+ Check if old position exists before randomizing (makes sure that undo maintains position).
+ Minor usability improvements
+ Renamed REM to DEL
+ Preventing deleting MASTER
+ Faster zooming
+ Slower dial motions when holding shift and control

No prob

Only way to close it when in focus is with the mouse. As well, none of my normal shortcuts work while this window is open.
Yeah, this is quite annoying. But sadly, something I cannot fix at the moment. There is no method for passing shortcuts back to the main window. If this ever becomes available in the API, I will add it immediately.

I could add a 'close window' command. If you make it the same as the toggle, we could at least fix that. What key combo would make sense for this?

I don't know if you planned to expand the routing wires to also describe the pin connections, or if that's quite a lot of work or even possible, but it would be tremendously useful.
This is just track routing. There's no pins there yet. If you want to see the bus pins, install MPL's routing script and do ctrl + double click on a bus or machine in the routing window. It is something I am considering in the future, but it will be a while before I do this.

In use, I'm finding it's very easy to accidentally delete things when I accidentally click the middle mouse while scrolling to zoom or middle-click-dragging the view. Undo is cool for this, except it restores the deleted machine to some other location, which is confusing. And since you can drag the view and delete them in the same motion, easy to miss.
Undo forgetting the position is fixed
But yeah, I should probably add customizable mappings in the future, like I did for Hackey Trackey. Could you based on the F1 menu, give me a full list of what'd make sense to you? So I can see how different mappings might fit together?

Zoom is now faster by default. There's also Pg Up and Pg Down to instantly zoom to two specific levels. Ctrl + Scrollwheel zooms slower.

Added.

Fixed.

On the to-do list.

Good one. Still on the to-do list.

Yes! Added ctrl and shift modifiers to allow more precise movements (they stack).

Done

I hope that even those unfamiliar with Buzz can also appreciate how cool it is to do routing this way. Maybe it looks crazy to the uninitiated, but for me it's like coming home. And more importantly, improved, as with this ability to see the signal flow!
Nah, it's cool. I appreciate the enthusiasm.

I won't have much time to code on these projects in the coming few weeks, but don't think the project is dead after that, I will return to it!
