Friday November 19, 2004. 02:13 PM, by clouvel Music Software > Sagan Technology
Music Software : Metro updated to v6.2.2.1 - macmusicSagan Technology has released a new update (again...) for Metro. The soft is updated to v6.2.2.1 and now features :

- Version number column has been added to the plug-ins window.
- Multiple Undo with user size setting in buffer preferences. -
- Plug-in editor windows are remembered and restored.
- new MIDI Document Icon for OS X.
- new 'wait for note' mode now works with audio and soft-synths.
- optimization should improve drawing speed of audio overviews.
- recognized files dragged to the tracks window are now accepted.
- plug-in editor windows are marked with their section and track location in the windows menu.
- soft-synths installed after other soft-synths in an effect chain are now flagged and an error message appears.
- Metro now only saves program names to .ins files.
- the plug-in popup, when selected on an aux buss, now shows all plug-ins not just soft-synths.
- the jukebox can now read iTunes information written into .aif files such as title, artist and more.
- help tags can be turned off and on via the help menu.

And bug fixes now :

- several problems with notation have been corrected.
- the plug-in column of the tracks window was being reset and thus disappearing upon reloading of Metro documents.
- the Jukebox window was not returning to the beginning or previous song properly when the left arrow button was pressed in some cases.
- miscellaneous cosmetic problems fixed.
- cut and paste of full audio tracks was broken if the audio regions referenced files that were marked as deletable.
- the correct cursor type is now selected if the mouse is over the drum names or drum set regardless of what graphic editor tool is selected.
- drum sets and drum names can be selected regardless of what graphic editor tool is selected.
- when a plug-in was cleared, its automation was not.
- changing the tempo now moves automation with the audio.
- when the first soft-synth in a chain is cleared it was possible that the new chain's output was not being set to the original output.
- on some occasions, particularly after mixing or rendering audio, Metro would leave notes on in soft-synths.
- better stability with some plug-ins, notably VirSyn:Cube.
- Metro was not playing back 8 bit .wav files correctly in the jukebox.
- Metro was not playing back 8 bit .aiff files correctly in some cases.
- There were still some cases where subsections containing soft-synths would be out of sync with audio and MIDI.
- Miscellaneous minor display abnormalities.
- Miscellaneous display optimizations under OS X.
- A problem where automation was being data sent even if automation play was off in the mixer window.
- Continuous data display of EFX automation has been enhanced.
- Core Audio latencies are calculated more accurately.
- Multiple track paste could have failed in some rare cases.
- Multiple track paste was not always restoring the copied soft-synths properly.
- Audio overviews are drawn more accurately.
- Subsection events contained on a muted track were, in some cases, not being triggered so that unmuting the track would not cause the subsection to play.
- The selection is transposed correctly after certain note drag operations.
- Preferences are now migrated into a new Metro 6 Preferences file. This solves backward compatibility problems with the old preferences file.
- Some very old versions of Metro did not store automation correctly. Metro now detects and automatically fixes this problem.
- Possible crash if working with bypass automation in the graphic editor and then switching to EFX automation.
- For some unknown reason, reportedly starting with, if internal channels are allocated before audio input is selected, audio input was impossible.
- A lock up was possible if a recent file was deleted from the finder before returning to Metro.
- Small memory leaks.

Waooo...This update costs $30 and is free for Metro 6.2x users.
