      • Velocity modes: key, relative and absolute
      • Fixed note method for drum patterns.
      • Alternate Strumming (flam) makes it easy to switch flam at each arpeggiator step.
      • Flam can be specified at each arpeggiator step for customized strumming.
      • Pattern changing/looping make it easy to create long patterns or programmable arpeggiator pattern changes such as key switching.
      • Remote control events can be used for pattern switching and can be configured via MIDI learn.
      • Each pattern can have an independent base scale.
      • Keys modes, specifies if notes are sounded in addition to arpeggiated notes and more.
      • Arpeggiator presets can be saved individually or as a complete set.
      • Keyboard window is resizable horizontally.
      • Expand pattern command.
      • Ties in the arpeggiator window are more intuitive now.
      • Legato duration step will play until another step plays the same tone or until the end of the pattern.
      • Dragging MIDI files to arp window selects fixed note method if initiated in a drum view.
      • 100’s of presets included.
      • Transport’s ’Stop’ button stops arpeggiator latching.
      • Much more.
    • Remote Control events are now in three user selectable and independent categories; Persistent, Document and Arpeggiator events.
    • The onscreen keyboard window step velocity is saved with the Metro document.
    • Contextual ‘View’ menu in the mixer window allows mixer channels to be viewed via ‘Show All’, ‘Hide MIDI’, ‘Hide Audio’, and ‘Hide Selection’ commands.
    • Mixer Channels can be rendered via the Mix Or Render Tracks dialog.
    • Background color for continuous data view can be specified in the general preferences dialog.
    • Swing is ignored if the quantize is a quarter note or greater.
    • Plug-ins with no GUI look better in the plug-in rack.
    • Menu item to add ‘new aux buss’ in the output popup of the instantiated effects window.
    • Help tags for the keyboard window.
    • Default number of undo steps increased to 48.
    • Alt (option on Mac) + Shift quantizes selection to note editor quantize settings.

    • Metronome clicks sounds.
    • Rescan audio devices in the Digital Audio setup dialog (New for Windows only).
    • Horizontal mouse scrolling can now be emulated by user specified buttons configured in preferences. (windows)

Fixed in this version:
    • MIDI Thru was ignoring a track’s transpose setting.
    • Copying and pasting tracks unassigned to any mixer channels would sometimes not preserve the original tracks output port.
    • Better plug-in compatibility.
    • Better cross platform compatibility.
    • Increased stability.
    • Recording with the selection filter enabled would produce unexpected results.
    • Sample rate conversion would not work properly in some cases.
    • Virtual Instruments note on and note off are ordered more precisely when they start and end on the same MIDI clock.
    • Expand track loops was off by one MIDI clock per iteration.
    • It was possible, in certain rare cases that a note would lose some of its parameters when dragging its pitch up and down.
    • Count-off was not working if a plug-in was placed on an aux buss or a mixer channel.
    • It is now possible to drag MIDI files from other programs to the keyboard window arpeggiator section.
    • Plug-in Bypass was not always working properly.
    • In chain mixing of multiple zero audio input plug-ins was not always working properly.
    • A crash could have occurred when opening older Metro documents if ‘ignore window positions’ was selected from the switches menu.
    • Transpose Markers works properly now.
    • Revert would fail for Metro stationary documents.
    • Mix or Render initiated from the sections window now works as expected.
    • System exclusive recording was using 16 bits for the size, effectively limiting it to a maximum of 64k. (Windows)
    • Trim overlapped notes, in the duration dialog, was not implemented. (Windows)
    • Metro Preferences have been moved to an easier to find place, in the “SaganTechnology” folder, now found within the mydocuments folder. (Windows)
    • Numerous other bug fixes.
