Radium is a music editor with a new and better interface.
It's inspired by trackers, but has fewer limitations and uses graphics 
to show musical data.

The advantages of this interface compared to piano rolls (the normal 
sequencer interface), are that note editing is quicker, and that more 
musical data fits on the screen.
The advantage of this interface compared to trackers, is that note 
positions and effects are edited graphically, which is both quicker, 
provides more vertical space, and gives a better musically overview.

However, despite it's unusual appearance, it's a design goal for Radium 
to be straight forward to use, and easy to learn. It should not be 
harder to learn Radium than any tracker or most midi sequencers.
