It is getting really nice :)

I am looking forward to being able to specify midi input for
individual machines (maybe exposing midi machines as alsa input
ports would be an easy way?).. also, being able to input patterns
using the midi keyboard would be really good!

Some way of altering parameters for the effects plugins in the
pattern editor would also be good.

Oh.. I also tried out energyXT last night.. Aldrin is way
better :)
