IX's "Magic"

Machine info
Create date17 May 2020
DescriptionA peer/MIDI event sequencer, whatever that is. It's good, go with it. Feed it notes to make cool stuff happen.

In the main dialog you can define Pages, Sequences, Steps and Events and what not. Each "Page" is the top level object which contains "Sequences", which contain "Steps", which contain "Events". The "Events" make cool stuff happen.

You should definitely read the manual. Really. No, really. I really mean it. I do. Honest. Please?
