Great new build Ben. Especially good is the copy paste/over function. 
This will allow a lot of freedom and creativity for the user.

Following on from this, and forgive me for harping back to a previous 
request of mine, but would it be possible to enlarge this function to 
allow an ascii pattern to be pasted (ie from the wealth of already 
tabbed patterns on the net).

What I'm thinking is say copying a line from a  pattern say 
--o---o---o---o- and have db place a beat space wherever there is a '-' 
and a default drum or any other character (X or O or whatever). I see 
it as being used on a scrap bar to see where each beat falls in 
relation to others and then transcribing from this onto  the bar worked 
on within DB. It would save a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and tedious 

It need'nt be a fully blown 'feature' but if it were a reasonably 
simple thing for you to do and if it could work along the lines of the 
new cut/paste function I think it would be another valuable asset for 
the user - certainly for me! :-)
