Hello, I work in Ableton Live, and find it to be wonderful - Ableton has nice sounds, and notes can be entered one at a time to the piano scroll. The only problem is, I'm limited to seeing or editing the piano scroll of only one instrument at a time. This makes it difficult to do contrapuntal writing. (For Ableton users, I'm referring here to the "Arrangement View";)

My ideal interface would have some sort of 'tabs' at the top of the piano scroll, for displaying the instrument you want to edit to the foreground. The notes of the other instruments could be displayed in the background, for example with transparent boxes - or ideally, each instrument could be color coded.

Does anyone know of other (DAW) software that offers this sort of functionality?
