3rd March 2008
Sagan Technology has released Metro v6.4.3 (Pre-Release).
- Real Time Arpeggiator has been completely rewritten and placed in the keyboard window with a huge feature set including:
- Multiple arpeggiation patterns.
- Multiple methods; up, down, updownedges, chords and diatonic chords.
- Octaves control.
- Sync control.
- Swing control.
- Steps control.
- Pattern UI area with 16 X 3 steps, each with quick independent control over transpose, velocity and duration via popup.
- Initialize pattern.
- Randomize pattern.
- Shuffle pattern.
- Load and save presets.
- Copy and paste.
- Transpose up and down.
- Remote control of Arp parameters.
- Works with all soft synth plugs and external MIDI.
- Now available for free for Metro SE and Metro LX users.
- The entire remote control window and functionality is now available for free for Metro SE and Metro LX users, including built-in preset support for Tranzport, Alphatrack, Axiom and more. If anyone adds support for other devices please send us the preset to share with everyone.
- Smarter about what is shown below a MIDI/Audio track when in controller view.
- Time signatures are retained.
- Keyboard window position and Arpeggiator data stored in documents.
- Improved Leopard (OS X version 10.5) compatibility.
- Dragging files to Metro while a modal dialog was active could have caused some problems.
- The new feature of default outputs implemented in 22.214.171.124 caused several problems. When a track insert MIDI plug-in was assigned it may have been difficult to add a synth to a new track. Pasting was not correctly assigning outputs in certain cases.
- It was possible that the graphic editor track selection popup would default to a track that did not exist.
- If no MIDI devices are selected on startup a MIDI Setup dialog is displayed. This now occurs later in the startup cycle.
- A possible crash relating to offline plug-in processing has been corrected.
- The position and order of windows are restored correctly upon document load.
- A problem whereby weird things could occur when trying to automate a aux pan knob.
- Inserting time into a frozen track was not working correctly.
- A crash was occurring trying to parse some audio files when a QuickTime version less than 7.0 was installed.
- Rhythm Explorer was not generating data using the selected time signature in some cases.
- Importing an audio file with no other tracks, now correctly sets the tempo.
- updated remote control preset for Tranzport. This allows shift-rotary knob to control the jukebox volume when jukebox is active.
- Expanding loops no longer duplicates special bank and program events. This could cause hiccups during playback to some devices.
- A crash could have occurred if notes were pending to be sent to a Virtual Instrument during document open.
- Miscellaneous bug fixes and other enhancements.
