Improvements made to Windows-based audio and MIDI sequencer 31/05/06
We hadn't had any news from these guys for a while, but MultitrackStudio by Bremmers Audio Design is a low cost audio/MIDI multitrack recording software for Windows combining a multitrack recorder, a mixer, lots of effects and a MIDI sequencer in one package. Version 4.1 has just been released with a whole load of improvements outlined below: User Interface improvements:
New improved help system.
Yellow hint balloons appear at more convenient locations.
Hardware control surface support.
Mixer sections can be collapsed to save space.
Selector windows (the VST plugin selector etc.) can be resized.
Level meters of recording audio tracks: righthand segment flashes if overload occurred. Rightclicking resets it.
The intensity (brightness) of the green displays and editors is adjustable.
VST/DX windows: click the 'metal' to return keyboard focus to MultitrackStudio (if plugin has taken it).
Chords and Lyrics. Can be displayed in almost any editor.
Toggle Play, Rec, Mute or Edit buttons of all tracks simultaneously (use Ctrl key)
MIDI editing improvements:
Click Track Generator and Tempo Editor: tempo values can be entered by tapping on the space bar.
Pianoroll: added big size view.
Pianoroll: While selecting a part: if the selected notes make a chord the chord's name is displayed.
Notation Editor: better 'cleaning up' of non-quantized notes.
Notation Editor: added Tenor and Alto clefs.
Drum Editor: delete, drag or change volume of similar notes in similar bars simultaneously.
'Mouse Modifiers' to edit individual notes quickly (volume, duration etc., or even 'expand to chord').
24 bit losslessly compressed .gjm and .gjs audio files (Pro Plus Edition only).
Audio engine takes advantage of dual core CPU.
MIDI file resolution doubled.
Convolutor effect works faster when used 'live', or when using an Intel CPU (it was fast on AMD already).
