Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a crash on Mac that could occur for example when the window was opened or a different library was selected. Only recent versions of certain hosts seem to have been affected, for example Cubase 10.5.
  • It should no longer crash if no sound libraries are available at startup or when a project is loaded.

Song Track

  • Deleting a song track should no longer sometimes cause a crash.
  • Playing tempo ramps on the song track without Follow Host, the tempo made some incorrect jumps sometimes and some notes could be missed.
  • When looping, the first note(s) could sometimes be skipped.
  • Keyboard shortcuts would stop working on the song tracks after a track was deleted.
  • The text “Drag MIDI song block here” could in certain cases incorrectly appear on the track when recording was going on, the tempo editor was open or the time signature editor was open.


  • Fixed a crash that occurred when “Select the Hi-Hat Pedal Control CC(s)” was clicked in e-drum settings.


  • At startup on Mac, if there was a dialog saying that the audio device could not be opened and you clicked the dialog button to open audio setup, the menus in SD3 would stop working (until you clicked on SD3 in the Dock).
