Hmm, true, I see what you mean (if this is what you meant originally, I
think I mis-understood you the first time).  That's actually kind of a
bug, though it's probably not worth working around.  This way you have
extra control depending if you want it to be a temporary change or not :)

Essentially, except you've got it backwards I think -- pulling slows
down, so it would become 111.6.

>If so, why not display both the percentage and the end resulting BPM?

Well, the tempo will potentially vary from bar to bar, so where would the
"current" bpm be displayed?  I think it might be confusing to have it
jump around during playback.

>How was your trip?

Amazing... not long enough... spent 3 days in manhattan and hardly saw
anything (relatively speaking).  I want to go back! :)
