Bremmers Audio Design has released version 7.4 of MultitrackStudio. The new release focuses on touchscreen support improvements - MultitrackStudio allows for full touchscreen operation, so it can be used on Windows 8 tablets, for example. Touchscreen support appears in the Windows versions only.
The 7.4 release features many small changes and some big ones. Most notably mixer sections can now be scrolled vertically anywhere, even on faders or rotary knobs.
- Improved touchscreen support (Windows).
- 'To Song (Hi)' control surface action to make 'To Song' work with more than 128 songs.
- Automation Editor (Pro Plus) and Automated Fader windows can be resized vertically.
- Score editor has 'Split in equal parts' option, just like pianoroll.
- 'Size' setting in Preferences window to scale user interface independently from Windows DPI setting (Windows).
- Better DPI scaling for DPI value just above 96 (Windows).
- Tempo editor: tempo line is now updated while moving it vertically.
- Editor Edit/Delete and Undo/Redo buttons have been swapped.
- Score editor: '1'..'6' and dot buttons are replaced with a single dropdown list next to the '+' button.
- Score/pianoroll editor: 'Merge Notes', 'Expand to Chord' and 'Split in equal parts' now appear in 'More...' button list.
- Drag-and-drop: an image is visible while dragging an effect slot or mixer section etc.
- Pianoroll editor allowed for making note duration zero. This could cause problems, especially with cycling playback.
