What's New in Version 3.45
* Mistake fixed in scales definition file
Ok tool crippled with a clumsy interface
Pretty decent featurewise, but I'm constantly annoyed by having to hold a note to make it active (to add it to the grid). This makes editing slow compared to, e.g., Tonepad and prohibits you from drawing multiple notes with a stroke.
