I downloaded this last night. I read the manual and tried a few things. I didn't find it all that easy to use, frankly. One BIG problem is the UI is just too small. Even with my glasses on, I can't read or see clearly all that's on the screen. It would be nice to make larger or provide a way to do so. that's a complaint I have about a LOT of plugins and VI's, not just this one. Redrum is another one that I find very hard to see stuff.

I hope some kind of "how to" video is forthcoming on this because, frankly, I didn't really understand exactly what it was doing. I didn't get the relationship between the grid and keys graphics. I get how placing triggers on the grid can create the rhythm on the horizontal line, but the relationship between that and the vertical, along with the key grid below makes no sense to me. I know some here thought it was great and intuitive. Well, I've doing electronic music since the days of the ARP2600 and I do not find this one intuitive at all.

Maybe when a 'how to' vid comes out I'll try using it again. Until then, I've got many other players I much prefer.

That sounds like your screen has too high DPI/PPI for your eyesight. The best solution would be to get a bigger screen with the same physical resolution, or to lower the resolution settings, or to use the scaling option (available in R12).

There seems to be something wrong with the first step of the the note lanes. When I drag the beginning of the note to the left, I can't drag it back to the original starting point (shown at 0:00-0:12 & 0:36-0:45 in the video). The other steps don't seem to have this problem (shown at 0:13-0:35).

I have been playing with this player a lot lately. It's got some cool features. I particularly like the time base knobs (desync and stop). I wish it had a record button.

Maybe I'm missing it, but is there any way to copy/paste a pattern?

Thanks a lot omino :-) It´s very welcomed here. Just noticed it exists :-D

Only thing I whished or maybe two from playing around with it a little bit are thinner lines for the grid display and 128 step patterns, though 64 helps alread a bit compared to MPS´32 :-).

Good question. Made me curious. I've got *most* of the players in the shop, so I figured I'd run a little test. The video shows the players that have automatable pattern lengths. I don't think I missed any.

Enlightenspeed Melodic Inverter. It could be discontinued now.

Yeah, I think you're right. Similar to what happened with Enlightenspeed Chordbank -> Agnostic.

And I just now noticed this clever use of words... sync or swim! ha ha ha, that's great!
