    I find that, entering in a squiggly line when zoomed into a 12 second segment has a lot more sensitivity than entering one in when zoomed out to 120 seconds. (This is a long-standing thing that I've only now thought to mention. )

    I really like HighC - I've used it for lots of projects, and this is the only real problem I have with it when it comes to writing music -

    Peace,

    (on a related note - is there any way to manually adjust the drawing sensitivity?)

    You are not the first one to complain. Right now, there are no settings for sensitivity, and I should be able to provide more fluid interaction.

    What device are you using to draw your curves? Mouse, trackpad, tablet, touchscreen? Each of those devices shall require a specifc filtering algorithm, knowing that the mouse and trackpads will never give entire satisfaction.

    Also, if you're willing to share, you can send some of the stuff you're doing. A) as far as I can, I try to publicize it B) it gives me great incentives to improve the software when I see what is being done with it.

    You can attach zipped and gzipped files to a comment in this forum, send files to me via email, or publish them on youtube and point them here.

    "What device are you using to draw your curves?"

    A touchpad usually. I have a tablet, but don't usually use it with highc (and I've misplaced the stylus). It's okay for entering stuff at the standard zoom level, just that it doesn't seem to work so well when zoomed out.

    As for my own stuff, I fear you might say "I'm never going to work on it again if that's what people are using it for" ;) - But, given that you asked: I've done a lot of small projects (and used it in a number of them in small ways - for sound effects and the like), and it's hard to remember where I've used it, but a quick scan revealed http://www.increpare.com/2010/07/snowdrift/ + http://www.increpare.com/2010/02/crush-fetish-trilogy/ (not safe for work) )

    Any further plans on working on this? It makes the software a lot harder to use for longer-scale compositions. I don't even think this is a device-specific thing - it's the case I think that drawing should be independent of scale (that is to say, relative to the screen), surely, regardless of device?

    Here's me drawing a wave in a 12-second piece (uh, ignore the diagonal line to the right)

    and here's me drawing the same shape in a 60-second piece
