Please keep in mind that classic MIDI (via that cables to other hardware) has a very low data rate so those envelopes with continous value changes can bring your connections to it's knees. The old visualisation approach does indeed just give you the right impression of whats going on - discrete serial messages. The new style "teaches" newbies that can make all sort of fun with MIDI and then later the threads pop up "Reapers MIDI timing is so bad"...

On the other hand it would be really cool to have a time based quantization feature. So when you draw an LFO like CC envelope the output to your hardware gets limited to a practical value so it's secured that those important note events don't come two seconds later.

Just my 2 cents.
