Release Notes - Fugue Machine Audio Unit (FMAU)’s timeline now properly restarts when its AUv3 Host sends it a Reset message. AUv3 Hosts send Reset messages to plug-ins in various situations, most notably here when you use the host to enable/disable loaded instances of FMAU. Prior to this version, if an instance of FMAU and its host were both running, if you were to disable the FMAU instance and then enable it again, there would be a CPU spike the moment you enable it. Fixed now. And thanks to the fix, a new possible use case: enabling/disabling instances of FMAU in the host now effectively launches/stops them on the host’s musical grid, which can be quite fun. Thanks to Gavinski of Gavinski’s Tutorials for catching the issue and inspiring the new use case.

These instruments are NOT sample libraries. Unlike sampling, which uses recordings to replicate the sound of an instrument, physical modeling doesn’t generate a sound as such but creates the conditions for the system to create it according to an external input (like someone playing on a keyboard).

Helium is a lightweight AUv3 MIDI sequencer plugin designed specifically for AUM. It supports up to 16 tracks of unlimited length with the ability to direct output to 16 channels on up to 16 MIDI output ports.

New version 1.45
Old version 1.44
Release Notes 1.45 184 - Release Candidate Fixed an issue with note lengths not being remembered if End Notes is disabled in Grid. Fixed a spelling mistake in the Songs tab of the Media Bay. Fixed an issue with the Edit Controller List (long pressing the tick). Fixed a spelling mistake 'Flattern -> Flatten'. Fixed an issue where a menu phase was too long in the Launch Button options menu. The help manual has gone through a complete re-write courtesy of David Collett. Remote mode now syncs to tempo if loaded under a host and in Song mode. In song mode, a Play Once part now plays properly on BEAT 1. I now force the Quantize to BAR when song mode is activated. This forces people to lay song parts on BAR boundaries. Important Note: All song parts must start on a BAR boundary. Any part that causes the transport to STOP requires at least 1 BAR between parts to re-schedule playback. In general this is not a problem. The only time you would use Play Once is if you want to stop playback, otherwise you would use Loop mode.

Release Notes * Replaced the app notifications function with operating system push notifications. These will appear in your device's notification center instead of within the app, and then clicking a notification will open the app to the relevant page. This makes app notifications a good alternative to SMS notifications if you're having trouble with spam filtering. However, app notifications will only appear on devices where you have the app installed and you haven't disabled the notification permission. ! Added your email, phone and other notification settings to the Settings > General page, so you can adjust these without logging into the website. ! Changed the Notifications list that appears when clicking the alert icon in the top toolbar to an Action Items list. This list now shows events that are waiting for your response, contact actions that are due and checklist items that are due. Also, changed the alert icons next to project names in the Accounts list, and the numbered app badge, to indicate these action items instead of unread notifications. • Added large response buttons near the top of the event edit page when the event is waiting for your response. • Added notification icons to the Checklists list and the main menu shortcuts for checklists that have waiting items. • Fixed the handling of bandhelper:// URLs from a text message to correctly open a specific page within the app. * Added the ability to mark headings in the Lyrics and Chords fields with a # character. If you place this at the start of a line, the rest of the line will display with the heading size, color and style you set on the Settings > Appearance page. You can optionally place spaces before the # to indent the heading. Spaces between the # and the heading text will be ignored. • Updated the transpose function to retain alignment of bar lines (| characters) even when repeated beats aren't marked with dashes. This allows a more horizontally condensed chord chart that can be sized larger without wrapping lines. • Fixed the alignment of ChordPro chords within right-to-left text. ! Moved the Settings button from the Accounts list to the top toolbar so you can access the settings more quickly from anywhere in the app. If this results in more buttons than you want in the top toolbar, you can hide any you're not using from Settings > Appearance > Top Toolbar Buttons. Also moved the Apps list to the Repertoire menu and the Totals Report to the Help > Utilities menu. • Added Settings > Appearance > Highlight Multiple Button Names to highlight the button icons and names in multiple MIDI, document, recording and marker buttons instead of just the icons. • Removed the contact buttons from the Contacts list when the list is narrower than 360 pixels, and from the Actions and Checklists lists in all cases, to make the list contents easier to read. You can still access the contact buttons from contact or action edit pages by clicking an item in the Contacts or Actions list. • Sorted actions on the contact edit page from newest to oldest to match the website. • Fixed a crash when selecting different users on the event edit page. • Stopped fading uneditable documents, recordings and MIDI presets on the song, event, contact and transaction edit pages, so make it more clear that you can still view them even if you can't edit them. • Disabled the Image button in the formatting toolbar when the song has no JPEG documents attached. • Set the Width In Lyrics to 100% by default when adding a new document. • Fixed the Users setting for set lists in Basic accounts. • Fixed the button colors in the print popup on the document and file edit pages.
