The interface is really good. I've used other sequencers (Cake Walk, etc.) but this is the easiest. I really like setting levels of multiple channels at the same time to the same level. I also like how easy it is to manipulate tempo, dynamics, etc. by just using a graphic line and using my mouse. It also supports fermatas! (A long-time burr in my saddle concerning other sequencers.) In short, a great program.
demo is limited to 15 days and does not allow saves. Which doesn't let you test out compatibility issues.

I was looking for something to use when I'm in Windows that would be the nearest equivilent of Rosegarden for Linux. MIDI Maestro is it. It took me a little bit to get used to the interface but now I'm familiar enough with it to see that I like it. I had no problems at all with deleting a track as one user did. Operation is smooth, performance good.
