First feature request:
Panic button right on the Play gui to shut down all MIDI in case of stuck notes. Having to go to a menu to select 'stop all voices' is not convenient or fast, especially with the vagaries of the Play menus sometimes disappearing before making a selection.

Second featrue request:
Configurable mixer so we can add our own aux channels for grouping instruments/articulations into auxes for feeding individual groups of tracks to a daw.

+1 for the convenient panic button. I haven't had problems with Play in a while, but I blew out a monitor from the previous "white noise of death" bug.

On a related note, if anyone has expensive monitors, at least consider a hardware limiter just to be safe. I made that mistake not expecting a software plugin to unexpectedly output everything a million dB louder. I'm obviously exaggerating, but anyone else who experienced this bug knows what I'm talking about.

A big red button with that Scream image should do the trick.

FYI: Double click the voices counter in the Player interface to stop all voices.

Cool to know. I normally use the 2-button function on my M-Audio controller for this.

Thanks for the info. Never saw this documented anywheres. That being said a true panic button would be nice.
