Ah, there may be some misunderstandings:
- In regards to sound editing capability, nothing has really changed
in the Etoys image. Open a .mid file from the FileList or click
on the load button in the menu bar to navigate to the file and
press "open". There, you can open the piano roll. You can drag
the "notes", and add new notes if you "add keyboard" from the
context menu of piano roll.
- To get more developers' like features, you can set the
eToyFriendly preferences off. From the World's halo menu, choose
preferences. Then, type something like "etoy" into the panel and
turn off the eToyFriendly off.
