Sequencer Programming

Xcode3In a Sneak Peek for OS X Leopard, Apple shows a debugging mode in Xcode that works something like music sequencers.

Taking its interface cues from timeline editors such as GarageBand, now you can visualize application performance like nothing you’ve seen before.

Truly track read/write actions, UI events, and CPU load at the same time, so you can more easily determine relationships between them.
