Hey all,

I remember a while ago someone asked if the creator of Synthesia would be willing to add some sort of editing of midis, and the creator of Synthesia replied that he can't because there is a patent for horizontal music editing software.

But my google search is coming up empty on this, could anyone link the relevant patent? Since I would be interested in developing an open source software for horizontal editing.

Thank you. Have a good day!

I also don't have any recollection of this. I know about a handful of patents that have prevented features in the past (mostly Score Following), but not anything that had to do with editing.
