Drag'n'drop would be a nice feature here. :)

As long as we're chatting on the list again, I thought I would bring one of the above issues up again: I'm just doing some dbkit editing, and find myself (again!) wanting to globally grab all the Variants of a particular Instrument and tweak all the Master Volume settings together (as opposed to each individually).  I realize it might well be possible to have different Master Volume settings on different Variants within an instrument, but perhaps the behavior could be either to let the slider reset the MV for all selected Variants, or (perhaps more complicated) increase/decrease the MV by the same number of percentage points for all selected Variants?

Similar behavior for the Panning slider would also be very welcome! :)
