Upon invocation, Non enters the pattern editor and loads Pattern 1. The pattern editor presents a grid interface--the heart a step sequencer. You can toggle a note on the grid by entering its coordinates with the keyboard or clicking an intersection with the mouse. The length of patterns is unlimited and no special action is required lengthen them (simply adding notes beyond the "end" is enough.) Non can present grids in one of two modes, expanded and compacted. In the compacted view, only named rows are displayed; this means that only the notes the current instrument or scale will consume vertical space--resulting in far more efficient use of screen real-estate. Any notes are made invisible by the compacted view will be silenced.
