oh, unfortunately midish doesn't support loops. There's some work in
progress though; There's another problem: tracks cannot be
edited while midish is playing (actually that's the main reason for
not having loops).

if you have other loop orientated software, you should use it
unless you want to hack on the midish code ;)

yeah that's what i do when i need loops. But I don't use a lot of

very interesting. I really like very mutch the ``control eveything
in real time'' thing. Nice work.

just a remark, if you're writing a front-end, you should use
midish rather that rmidish, it's simpler and more reliable; rmidish
is just a ``sample front-end''
