Hi Steven,

I'm not an official gtick developer, but I've been writing some patches
lately, so allow me to reply to your mail anyway.

Okay, so let me get this straight. The use case for this is songs that
change tempo or rhythm one or more times, and you need a quick way to
change the tempo to a predefined setting at the press of a button.
Sounds like a very reasonable request to me. The challenge here, in my
opinion, is to come up with a user interface that is not too
complicated. Something like memory set-reset buttons would do the trick,
but how to represent that nicely in the UI? Hmm...

That's one thing that's been bugging me as well. Thenths of a
beat-per-minute isn't a really useful precision. Luckily, it's easily
fixed :) I'll cook up a patch for this as soon as I have time.

Thanks for the feedback!
