64 bit version

Multiple output VSTi/DXi support - each stereo pair of a virtual instrument now has independent routing, inserts, mix (see console Mix tab)

Supports VST plugins with up to 8 inputs - only the 1st two channels are used. This is to enable support for complex processors like The Glue compressor

Improved hardware adaptation: Rename MIDI Ports with custom names

Improved Scene Access: Quick scene picker menu: Left click on scene list in header

Improved MIDI Filters: 4 key ranges in midi filters to support dead zones, layers, chords, etc.

Improved per-Scene Blob Control: Changed scene command blob options for finer control: Options now named: No, Auto, Yes, in addition to not-per-Scene

MIDI Monitor for plugins - visually determine what MIDI is making it to a plugin


New Scene Manager for better management of sets

More MIDI automation options for scene changes

Up to 8 "Quick Access" scenes re-callable via MIDI automation for immediate access regardless of set order

Global transpose options assignable to scenes, songs, sets, or the entire rack

jBridge support to host both 32 bit and 64 bit VST plugins

Audio and MIDI I/O devices are now rediscovered on rack creation or load.

Enhanced MIDI Panic to stop the audio engine, reset all MIDI ports, and restart audio.

Offline Operation: When loading a rack that is missing audio or MIDI hardware, you can now either adapt the rack to new hardware or choose to run the rack in "offline" mode. Offline mode creates "proxy" devices to simulate all audio and MIDI hardware. This rack will not stream audio or receive MIDI but it can be used for limited rack editing.

Paste channel or port mappings from clipboard
