I think so, yes.

I'm still integrating with Midish, so not entirely sure I'm doing
everything the best way,
but this issue came up while trying to record drum patterns - I want to
change a note here and there, change velocities, etc
but this task seems much better suited to a GUI editor/sequencer. I can do
clean-up work quickly in that environment,
but then I'd like to import the edited sequences back into midish. At that
point it would be nice to be able to import
an SMF as new track(s) from an arbitrary starting beat, without disrupting
anything else.

Another thing that would be extremely useful is an event list view where I
can nudge timings and values easily, note by note,
then I could stay in Midish the whole time (theoretically).
