Playback causes a temporary freeze

Attempting to play back a chord sequence causes the software to hang for around a second, which is long enough to miss the first chord making it difficult to listen to any changes. Looping solves the problem because you get to hear it on the second run through, but obviously using it more than a handful of times is a feature that costs money, and there isn’t a chance in hell that I’d pay for something as buggy as this.
