I have looked through these forums for information on software for Windows that allows MIDI Event edit on a Kronos sequence that has been loaded in Kronos, but have only found posts talking about exporting the sequence to general MIDI, then importing the sequence back in. Is there really not Kronos MIDI sequence edit software available for Windows?

Any DAW can edit MIDI notes. Not directly to the Kronos Seq, but a Seq can be exported to a DAW, edited, and returned.

Notes can be edited in the Kronos as well which is how I've done it. It's a system that once you learn it, it's not too hard to do.

I have been exporting to DAW and re-importing with success. I was hoping for a real time view of the tracks in classic tracker mode where multiple tracks are simultaneously visible on screen. I have been editing in tracker style since the 90s and it is much faster getting things done compared to Kronos MIDI Event Edit.

Believe it or not, it's non-trivial to implement software for MIDI editing. Many of the major DAWs struggled greatly with that as they evolved and grew.

With that in mind, while it may not seem optimal, the export / edit / import workflow really does give you the most powerful solution. It allows apps who have built stable and fully featured MIDI functionality over the years to do a good job when you're editing, and lets Kronos concentrate on being Kronos.

Cakewalk by Bandlab is now free. Back in the day Cakewalk was the big dog for MIDI editing before they started supporting audio recording, so you're going to have all the features you would want (including a score editor in addition to the traditional piano roll view, and printing scores).

As with any software there's a learning curve, but once you get over the hump you'll love the power it gives you.

Personally I use Cubase, which also has excellent MIDI functionality, but Cakewalk is now free so I thought it worth mentioning.
