Sagan Technology releases Metro v6.4.3.2

Sagan Technology has updated Metro to v6.4.3.2.


  • Improved Core Audio compatibility.
  • Arpeggiator has a new "spread" slider allowing among other things, guitar like strumming.
  • The left and right arrow keys can now be used to rotate the arpeggiator pattern in the keyboard window.
  • Many other arpeggiator improvements.
  • Dragging bar lines is now possible during playback.
  • Rendering a soloed track results in the new track being soloed and the old track being un-soloed.
  • It is now possible to automate and edit Aux buss return pan and volume.
  • Shift now affects all automation on audio tracks.
  • Total remaining time is now an option in the jukebox window.
  • Help tags added to portions of the jukebox and effects windows.
  • Auto audio shut off for audio/MIDI tracks. This means that Metro will now remember and relate the 'none' audio input setting on a track to a Virtual Instrument (VI). This setting is then restored when the VI is instantiated. The setting is remembered internally similarly to the contextual menu settings in the plug-ins window, i.e. in the SaganTechHostPluginInfo file.
  • The maximum external MIDI ports has been increased from 32 to 128.
  • Command-up and Command-down arrow keys now transpose notes when in drum views.
  • The list event editor maintains its start time when changing the event filter.
  • It is now possible to cancel searching for missing audio files by pressing the 'esc' key.


  • A possible crash could occur when attempting to shift frozen audio data.
  • Arpeggiator latching is automatically ended when playback stops.
  • Expand, as of version 6.4, was not adding outputs as necessary.
  • Punch in track would not play before the punch in recording point and the record light was not flashing.
  • Using the '[' and ']' keys to select previous and next notes now wrap correctly in both directions.
  • Software play through was not being enabled during playback (track inserts only).
  • Software play thru could be errantly get muted in certain cases including if there was a count off.
  • A problem with automation could occur if multiple sample rates were used in a document.
  • On the fly recording (record pressed during playback) works correctly now.
  • Selection filter presets were not working in some cases depending on PPQ settings.
  • Incoming MIDI notes were not recorded correctly if sysex was being sent out at the same time.
  • Copying and pasting automation from an aux track was not always working.
  • Clicking on the search window in the jukebox could cause a crash if there were no items listed.
  • If audio devices were changed it was possible that the audio input select menu would check default items incorrectly.
  • If Section Events were looped, tempo changes occurring after the end of the song were not being accounted for (e.g. in the case of cue looping).
  • A crash could have occurred if plug-in presets were mapped to program changes.
  • In some cases audio would initially be audible when recording over it.
  • A MIDI Server crash that could occur with certain MOTU MIDI drivers has been worked around.
  • Playback is no longer stopped after punch-in end if the 'stop playing at punch-in end' is not checked in the punch-in dialog.
  • Expanding track loops was not working correctly if the track loop did not start at the beginning of the track.
  • Plug-in editor sizes were not always being restored properly when a document was opened.
  • The text in the set selection dialog would appear with a black background on occasion under Leopard (10.5).
  • Software Audio Through would not play through the master effects chain in certain cases.
  • Effect parameter text labels no longer run into each other in the generic VST editor.
  • Changing the sidechain pre/post setting now takes affect immediately.
  • Better compatibility with VST's that do not know their editor sizes until after they are opened, e.g. Helix.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and other enhancements.
