#68 Tab Orientated Matrix Editor

Dan Halson

I often find myself with dozens of matrix editor windows
open and lose time attempting to resize them and position
them in a organised fashion, i like to be able to compare
midi tracks (especially when sequencing drums) so it
would be great to see a tabbed based interface, this way
i could easily change between different midi tracks and
clear up the clutter (and confusion) that occurs after
spending some time using rosegarden (or any
sequencer!) - on the topic of writing drum tracks and
comparing midi tracks it would be great to be able to do
split screens as well (along the lines of how konqueror
works, if you aren't sure what i mean). I just feel all in all
this would help keep the creative flow, making music
tends to become somewhat frantic at the best of times
and any help keeping order would be fantastic.

    Tabs would be nice, yes. Me, I'd like to see a matrix view mode in which
    several segments were open but only one active at a time, the notes from
    the others being traced over the background in light grey so you could
    just about follow the flow of the various segments together.

    A similar thing is needed for the notation editor, and in fact in that editor it
    was originally a requirement for 1.0 -- although the amount of work
    involved means it will probably have to be pushed back.
