I uploaded a new version which fixes the quantize button and adds a comment to the OSC setup.

Darth_fader, you have deserved way too little credit for you effort !
I want to thank you very,very much !

My main DAW of choice nowadays is Reaper (which is truelly an amazing DAW, way over Live imho).
So you can guess that your work for me is like being in heaven.

Looks interesting - any chance of.a version that runs in OSX? Is the exe just a max runtime or something more involved?
