For those of you who don't monitor OpenSebJ's downloads (most people ;-) I thought you might be interested to know that the 6000 download mark has been broken. Some great feedback has been provided about the Beta and it is be incorporated for the next release, until then keep making beats and let me know if you need any more help or you would like some new functionality - Peace
