Please add midi IMPORTING next!

I was hoping to find something to edit midi on at an affordable price, and I was disappointed to be unable to import music. Please add this.

Good Start!

This is a great tool for developing musical ideas. Pitch-wise it is pretty accurate, rhythmically it is lacking. In order to see subdivisions for 16ths you need to put 16 beats per measure. - that is misleading, it should be four beats per measure and have options to see subdivisions by either 8ths. 16ths, or triplets. That would be great. It supports the Apple Pencil, but cannot tell the difference between my pencil and my finger, so every time you go to move the sheet you end up with stray notes. Better Apple Pencil support and more accurate musical ways to control the rhythmic subdivisions would make this a very useful tool for serious musicians.

Not done well

Play icon doesn’t toggle. Erase button doesn’t. Stops playing every time I touch the piano roll even though I’m just trying to move the screen. Looked like a good idea. Just not done well to my way of thinking.
