Congrats on making this. I have wanted this in an NLE since the mid-90's. Glad somebody is doing something about it. Even if it didn't "detect" a beat. If it at least does what Pro Tools does/did where you set a mark where the first downbeat is and a mark where an end downbeat is and tell it how many measures have passed and with some simple math lays markers down in the middle bits.

This looks super useful, kinda surprised nobody has done it before.

 

When you stagger layers to the beat, is it based on the markers? What I mean is, can you create your own markers and stagger to them? This would be really useful for things like animating to a VO.
