Release Notes 2.4.6 brings some great new features and improvements to PolyNome. The summary is below. Check "What's New In 2.4.6" in the in-app Help for further details. BIG FEATURES --------------- - MIDI device control, including Bluetooth MIDI pedals (in Preferences - > Remote Devices) - Import Setlists from Tempo and Tempo Advance! Share them from the Tempo/Tempo Advance app and email them to yourself. Then tap on the file in the email and choose to open with PolyNome. - Copy multiple Playlist items to your Preset Library (for re-use in other Playlists) by selecting them in Edit mode and choosing "Copy Missing To Preset Library" from the Actions menu. They'll be labelled with the name of the Playlist so you can easily filter on them. - On the Playlist page, if you select an item and choose "Add Count In" from the + menu, it now adds a named count in with voice counting before the selected item. - You can set Playlist items to SKIP when reached. This is great for Count Ins that you only want to hear the first time the Playlist loops. Set this by tapping the gear button of the relevant item, or by selecting multiple items and choosing "AutoAdvance Options" from the Actions menu. SMALL FEATURES ------------------ - When Met 2 is empty, there's a new option when you tap on it to "Copy Met 1 to Met 2". Useful if you've entered a rhythm and you need more than 2 lines of sounds. - When in a Playlist and you tap the "rep" button on the main screen, it will loop the current pattern. - Prompt about unsaved changes when entering Playlist Manager or Creating New preset to stop you accidentally losing changes. - Taller flashing blocks at the top of the screen. Enjoy these new features. If you have time to leave (or update) an App Store review, it's much appreciated and really helps with future development. Any questions, just get in touch via the App. Thanks for using PolyNome! Joe
