Radium

Screen dump: 

Radium is a music editor of the "tracker" family. Trackers are sequencers that display music data on a vertical, top-down list of notes and effects data.

From the Radium website description :

Compared to the normal sequencer interface editing is quicker and more musical data fits on the screen.

  • Compared to trackers, note positions and effects are edited graphically, which should be quicker, provide more vertical space and give a better musically overview.

However, despite its unusual appearance, it's a design goal for Radium to be straightforward to use, and easy to learn. It should not be harder to learn Radium than any tracker or most midi sequencers.
