Houston ,

we have a problem...

First thing I noticed is that the variations on the Drums are  
missing  - no triangle to pick the different types of Snare etc....

On a positive note, I like the return to the fold of selecting  
complete bars by default -  also, the new layout looks good.

Cheers

Charlie
