So I was working on my project in blocks the other day and noticed a new tool in the music toolbox. It allowed me to play songs I could create in a music sequencer that was also added to the asset library. The sequencer looked very similar to a familiar 16-bit paint program’s sequencer and used icons of ducks, cars and computers etc to represent instruments. It worked really well.
After I saved and came back later, my entire project crashed and would not save, export or simulate. I eventually managed to revert to an earlier state (lost some other work in the process) but the music player was gone. No longer in the toolbox, no longer in the assets. I’ve noticed a few commits on https://github.com/microsoft/pxt-common-packages talking about a sequencer but no notes in the commits as to why it was added and reverted.
Is there any explanation for this? The sequencer was great and allowed for detailed, polyphonic background music to be easily created. Is there a timeline for it being added back?
