XT Software has announced the release of version 2.5.2 of energyXT. It includes Live Markers functionality for live production, improved workflow and auto update.
- Live markers: The new live markers feature enables you to play with arrangements on the fly, making it much easier to experiment with different arrangements of your tracks. Once you find an arrangement you are happy with, you can turn it into a full arrangement with the click of a button. Furthermore, the live markers can be very effective in live situations, when you need to improvise arrangements on the fly.
- Improved workflow: The new 2.5.2 release features tons of small improvements that add up to a significantly improved workflow.
- Auto update: It's now easier than ever to ensure that you're running the latest version of energyXT. With the automatic update feature, energyXT can check for available updates and install them for you automatically.
