  • Playing the Tap2Find MIDI outside of Tap2Find locks (and, in some cases, changes) the song track tempo so that you can’t change it. Workaround: Enter and exit Tap2Find.
  • Going into Tap2Find when you already have some Tap2Find MIDI sets the Tap2Find tempo to what it was when the old Tap2Find MIDI was recorded/added. Workaround: First click the X button to clear the Tap2Find MIDI. Entering Tap2Find will then correctly set the tempo to the current song track tempo.

    • Improvements in the hammer-on/pull-off algorithm.

    Song Track

    • In the time signature and tempo editors, you can no longer create more than two nodes at the same time position by pressing the different “add” buttons or menu options, instead the last node is moved up or down when increase/decrease is pressed.

    • Slide graphics improvements – the slide line is more “attached” to the notes and the line is a gradient between the velocities of the slide notes.
    • Slide-ins/outs are now graphically represented by diamond shapes.
    • The lowest velocity notes are drawn a little brighter than before.
    • The layout of the Timing control view has been changed and it no longer overlaps the grid area.

    • “Add MIDI to Song Track” now copies tempo and timing to the song track if it’s empty.
    • “Add MIDI to Song Track” now places the MIDI either at the playhead or, if that’s not possible, after the last block.

    Settings

    • The multi-out checkboxes in settings and in audio settings (standalone) are now synced.
    • Added more explaining text for multi-out in settings. Also added a button for quick access to the standalone channel settings.
    • Added an option to enable/disable played note information (real-time chord display).
    • The “Reset to Default” button is now clickable while a keyboard shortcut is being edited.

    Standalone

    • Snap was not calculated correctly for triplets, which could lead to chords getting the wrong start and end times.
    • Recording in the middle of another MIDI block would cause the notes before the recording start time to be discarded.
    • Chords are no longer reanalyzed when the song key is changed without transposing.
    • Drawing a MIDI block with the pen tool could make the last note way too long.

    Grid Editor

    • Selected notes have precedence over not selected notes when clicking to drag a node in the velocity editor.

    • “Stretch to Next Note” now always stretches to the next visible onset, not to a removed one.
    • When an onset is moved, the onset to the left of it will now sometimes be made longer. Previously, this could happen at a later time, for example after reopening the project.
    • Manually adding onsets no longer leads to polyphony or weird slides.

    Changes

    General

    • Added support for “adaptive palm muting” which can be active in certain presets in future sound libraries. Defined by a preset-specific velocity-to-damping curve, it will generally induce more damping for low velocities and less damping when you play hard.
    • An undo/redo history submenu has been added to the Edit menu.
    • On Retina displays on Mac, many graphical elements are less blurry now. A few graphical artifacts, like thin lines that shouldn’t have been there, have disappeared.

    • Some improvements on handling bad MIDI files/recordings.

    Song Track

    • Notes should now be fully visible while recording and jumping back in the timeline.
    • Note articulations were not recalled (when loading a project or undoing/redoing, for example) for all notes if a very large number of articulations were set in a MIDI block.
    • In exported audio, ringing effects at the end of a song were sometimes cut short.
    • Exported audio should now have the correct length even when there are tempo changes on the track.
    • In exported audio, the latency is now compensated for correctly.
    • Adding a tempo node in the tempo editor and undoing should no longer make song parts appear on top of the tempo editor.
    • Splitting or resizing a chord with MIDI underneath did not save undo for the MIDI block, so undoing the split left the MIDI block with more chords than it should have.
    • Shift and command resizing of chords now work just as normal resize.

    Edit Play Style

    • The Damping knob should no longer affect chords after the selected chords.

    Grid Editor

    • Changing the GUI scale caused the articulation view to close even though the show/hide button indicated that it was shown, and the articulation view would be impossible to open until a note was changed.
    • It is now again possible to press “Cancel” when loading a file/recording into tracker.
    • The piano roll height did not scale properly, causing problems with zooming, for example.
