Default Simply Amazing !!!

It just gets better all the time ....!!!

I do hope Justin considers Pattern based MIDI as well as Linear...
Where as, Linear is suited for certain instruments (piano, ect) and styles
Pattern is essential for others. Such as drum tracks. And of course is very
familiar to many MIDI musicians.

Rock on Justin .... !!!!

I'm not all that good with MIDI but couldn't you simply create a midi file and loop it? and then add another midi file with your drum fill then pick up the original midi file again?
So technically its linear but you are using patterns.

Part of the reason for using patterns would be the ability to quickly build a song. And the interchangability of parts. Looping all those parts and remembering where and what would defeat the purpose.

That said... having access to both linear and pattern would give each user their working preference and probably, like myself will use both. It's a matter of working in a comfortable (and familiar) environment.

Even if you prefer linear, pattern would be a way to get ideas down fast. To later rework in your prefered mode...
