Sorry, I wasn't really expecting discussion on that particular random thought  
of the minute, so I didn't explain very well. :)

I was referring to seeing control curves drawn over top of the tracks in the  
master track window.  Something like this screenshot of sonar (best I could  


It would be nice as you could see your entire piece from the main window, and  
see where things evolve, how control changes relate to each other, etc.

The one (significantly more simple) feature I'd like to see in the MusE  
control editor is a line-drawing option like seq24.  Just load up seq24, plug  
in a few notes and play with the control editor, you'll see what I mean.

It would be nice to hilight all my kick drums, then draw a nice line to set  
all their velocities, for example.
