Overall improvements

  • Parameters controlled by a macro will now act as macro knobs themselves, rather than displaying a panel to change/set the value.
  • When displaying the FX panel back, restore the position where it was left on.
  • Mixer levels can now be switched between traditional green/red levels and track colors. Simply press the “•••” button at the bottom right of the mixer.
  • Added a RMS or Peak switch in the Mixer. Simply press the “•••” button to show the option panel.
  • Added a channel strip size switch in the Mixer. Simply press the “•••” button to show the option panel.
  • The 0dB graduation is now more prominent on mixer channel meters.
  • Renamed quantization recording option to “Quantize Note On’s” and “Quantize Note Off’s” for clarity.
  • Metronome options are now in a separate panel. To display it, long-press the metronome icon in the transport bar.
  • Added metronome volume and tuning in the new metronome panel.
  • Added “All Pass” filter type in SV Filter and 6-bands EQ effects.
  • “Dynamics” effect improvements.
  • Added a toolbar to copy, paste, cut and clear pads when entering “SELECT” mode on the main Perform screen.
  • When entering Pads “SELECT” mode, disable Repeat.
  • Pressing the browser headers, and the plugins list headers will quickly jump back to the beginning of the list.
  • Save and restore full-screen sample editor time reference.
  • It is now possible to set any color on tracks, banks & pads with the RGB color selector in the track panel.
  • It is now possible to set any color on macros with the RGB color picker in the macro setup panel.
  • Keep the order in which parameters are connected to macros, in the macro setup panel.
  • Audio tracks can now use any other tracks as their audio input (hardware outputs, auxes, other audio tracks).
  • In the Sound Store, you can now see which pack you already own and if they are already installed.
  • It is now possible to re-assign focus actions to another device.
  • Display sample bit-depth and sample rate in the editors.
  • Improved AUv3 & IAA MIDI events timing and sequencer position accuracy.
  • In the Settings, it is now possible to set the iOS audio system in “high-quality mode” (aka “measurement”). This mode is intended for apps that need to minimize the amount of system-supplied signal processing to input and output signals.

Sampler & Plugins

  • When double-tapping the sequencer stop button, don’t send note off’s messages on all 128 keys and all 16 channels.
  • Zoom to maximum level when long-pressing sample editor [+] button.
  • Slices can now be exported a separate samples. They will be saved in the main ‘Samples’ directory.


  • Added an arm button to enable/disable track recording.

Bug fixes & engine improvements

  • Effect presets can now auto-create macros again.
  • Bit-crusher max frequency limitation of 20kHz has been lifted.
  • In the full-screen plugin view, properly show the AUv3 user interface again after displaying the “Add effect” panel.
  • The “nuiFonts.db5” file, which was visible in browser Files mode, is now hidden.

  • Fixed an issue where AUv3 would be notified about sequencer position changes in pre-roll / count-in.
  • Fixed an issue with recorded quantized note off’s.
  • Fixed an issue where the bank group was not properly restored on session load.
  • Fixed a crash that would happen when double-tapping the track header in the Track Helper panel.
  • Fixed an issue where user packs filtering would still show after library change.
  • Fixed Saturator effect that would still apply output gain regardless of bypass status.
  • Fixed an issue preventing some IAA plugins to appear in the list.
  • Fixed an critical race condition between the audio engine and the UI that would crash the app when loading presets with lots of samples/layers (ie: BeatMaker Grand Piano).
  • Fixed an issue where the audio track input label, in the mixer, would not properly update after reloading a session.
  • Fixed the Slice Editor Snap L/R setting that was hidden in the “ENGINE” settings list.
  • Fixed an issue on the song editor and sample editor where zoom would get stuck.
  • Fixed an issue on the song editor where pinching would cut notes.
  • Fixed track listing order in the Audio Export panel.
