I haven't worked with it in a live setting, but I'll testify to its
utility and stability. You might spend an hour or two getting familiar
with its commands and interface, but it's a very straightforward program.
Btw, it's a MIDI-only app, so you'll want to be able to connect it to
outboard gear or softsynths. Or both... :)
