Improved browser, drag and drop style

Please, catch up with the browser, the current browser is just annoying and slow to work with, make it more effective, like this:

A drag-and-drop style browser working like the tool window, in that one can still turn knobs and edit in the sequencer while the browser is open. From this window, one can either drag a patch to an existing device, effectively replacing the patch that was there previously, or drag a patch to an empty space, and this way create a new device. The obvious advantage of this type of browser is that one can still edit things in the song while auditioning patches and samples. In very large refills with large amounts of patches, it is very convenient to be able to take a patch, mess a bit around with some parameters, then drag another and repeat the process, rather than having to click the map icon all the time.

Also, one can drag midi, rx2 and audio (record) files to the sequencer. (by the way, since Reason is all clips now, why not allow the user to save clips? The saved clip may or may not contain automation, and it can be used later in other songs or other contexts, without the need for extensive copying, pasting and trimming)

Audio files can be dragged to the samplers as well, it works this way: if you drag a sample to, say, F#4, the root note and lowest note of that sample is automatically set to F#4, and the range of the zone is by default set to only that note. If one wants to, there is an option (either a button on the NN-XT or a square bracket in the browser) to automatically set the root and lowest note with pitch detection. This makes the construction of drum kits and multisampled instruments very very much faster.

With this functionality, it is of course also possible to drag midi and audio files between Reason and other apps (DAWs, browsers, audio file managers, Finder, etc).
