Here’s what we’ve improved this week:
More intuitive editing of invisible notes
Previously, if a note or rest in your slice was marked as invisible, it was hard to figure out how to change that. Now, if you’ve selected that note, we’ll indicate its invisibility in our editor’s “Current” panel:
Click that icon to toggle note or rest invisibility.
We’ve also added an icon for “Toggle note visibility” directly to our editor’s Engraving menu. Previously this function was only available by searching for it in our editor’s search.
Smarter rendering of invisible notes
Previously, if all of the notes in a beam were marked as invisible, we still displayed the beam itself — which was a bit silly. We’ve fixed that.
Quick access to edit tempo markings
We’ve added tempo markings to our editor’s “Current” panel. If you’ve selected a note or rest that has a tempo marking above it, you’ll see the tempo marking icon up there:
Click that to quickly edit (or delete) the tempo marking.
More intuitive key signature editing for transposed instruments
If you edit the key signature for a transposed instrument such as a Bb clarinet, you now do that with respect to the transposed instrument. Previously, key signatures were always edited in concert pitch — which required you to do a mental calculation.
Hid message from Mixer if synth playback is disabled
Our player’s Mixer feature displays a special message if you have a real recording enabled:
However, it’s possible for a slice owner to disable synthetic playback — in which case that message is incorrect/confusing. We’ve fixed our player to hide that message if synthetic playback has been disabled.
