Version 3.6.2 release notes
- Added support for 4/5 string guitar, perfect for those of you wanting to write Ukelele or Banjo tab. To use, set a custom tuning for a specific instrument and select the 4 or 5 string option.
Tip: For a Ukelele or Banjo sound, just add an 'inter-app audio' instrument and connect a background app such a ThumbJam (highly recommend this app if you don't have it).
- Added warning prompt before you overwrite an existing file when saving.
- Fixed crash that occurred when trying to open a file or switch between mono/stereo whilst Jam Maestro is connected as a inter-app audio node (for example when hosted by AUM).
