I carry a picture of that FAT BASTARD in my wallet. :roll:
Sorry if I seem a trifle excited, but I perform 24/7 and watching Solaris grow is similar to watching your children graduate.

an "event sequencer" as planned is fine, however. more is not required, from my point of view.

Thanks for your input,

Thanks John, for both considering it and considering it carefully.

If there is a sequencer, I would very much appreciate if I can edit/import the sequence on PC and NOT fiddle on the solaris with sequencer parameters.

So my kind request would be a PC based editor that can also import midi data.
All fine to have it in a later release.

cheers

Word from the coder is that the arpeggiator will be able to send out MIDI, and most likely the step sequencer as well.
