OK, then ... I still added the prototype as a separate plugin since I
changed controls and deleted the tempo changing stuff. After figuring
out the UI concept, the plugins can easily be merged again --- see
comments in the added source file. I uploaded my current working hack
to .

Comments welcome.

Alrighty then,


Since I lent all my players, I won't be able to try and comment the plugin. Being no musician I guess I wouldn't have been a good tester anyway... and I am not even sure I would have figured out how to install it. Is it hard by the way ? I mean can it be explained in plain words to my nephew who is not skilled in technology (less skilled than I am, which could well be absolutely dumb). On the other hand he's a good guitar player and I got interested in this plugin because of that so I might check if he's available for a test (busy guy ;-p)

Tshaw !!
