Metro 7.2.2.x Now Available

Postby Jerm » Sun Mar 02, 2014 2:54 pm

The upgrade price for any version of Metro 6 is $34.99. This update is free for Metro 7 users.

Once you have purchased a license you may download our software here.

IMPORTANT: Metro Documents written with this version will NOT be readable in any version prior to version 6.5.2.

We want our software to be bug free. If you find any bugs please report them here.

New to this version: 7.2.2
  • An Automation Event Editor is now incorporated in the event editor. This allows for precise editing of all raw automation data. (Full version only)
  • The scope of track insert plug-ins has been changed to global. This means that insert plug-ins, such as soft-synths are now available to all sections. Any section can now be thought of as an instrument rack.
  • The drum sets in the drum set selection popups are now sorted.
  • The default multiple output setup is now configured via the plug-ins specification.
  • The names of each of a plug-in’s multiple outputs are displayed in a help-tag when hovering over the output in the instantiated effects window.
  • The automatic scroll edit delay has been changed to 4 seconds.
  • Next and previous preset buttons have been added to the real-time arpeggiator. This is very convenient for auditioning arpeggiator presets.
  • ‘No Pattern’ button added to the Rhythm Explorer when recording.
  • The Sections window now displays the currently selected section with an outline when the window is not in front.

Fixed in this version:
  • VST plug-ins were not being correctly informed when they were being rendered faster than real time. This was causing Vienna Ensemble Pro 5 (and perhaps other plug-ins) to not render or mix correctly.
  • The initial positions of the track windows data fields were being set incorrectly for the ‘SharpGray’ style. For example, the input vu levels were being hidden by default.
  • A crash could occur if a plug-in was not sending automation in the correct sequence.
  • A crash could have occurred if the number of mixer channels was less than 4.
  • It was possible that bypassing effects could cause noise or buzzing when multiple zero input plug-ins were contained in the same plug-in chain.
  • Plug-ins were not being informed of tempo changes immediately when playback was stopped.
  • It was possible that an audio track would not initially play back if multi-core audio was selected.
  • The display of an effect parameter automation could have shown incorrect data.
  • Several memory leaks have been plugged.
  • Better error message handling when a plug-in fails to load.
  • If a plug-in with zero audio inputs was loaded in the middle of a effects chain, it’s data chunk was not being restored.
  • The play bar color was not being restored properly when loading older documents (PC only).
  • Rhythm Explorer recording has been made more robust.
  • Selection filter display improved for ‘SharpGray’ style.
  • Multi-core rendering was not working correctly in some cases (Mac only).
  • MIDI record device selection was not working correctly until exiting and restarting. This bug was introduced in 7.0.2 (Mac only).
  • Other feature enhancements and fixes.

I just tried this on PowerPC G4 running OS X 10.4.11 and it works fine. Can you try removing your Metro preferences file and try again? You can find the preferences in 'users/yourusername/library/preferences/Metro 7 Preferences'. Please let me know what happens. Also please email me the crash log and any other pertinent information recorded in the 'console' program (found in your utilities folder).

EDIT: I think I may know the problem... still analyzing...

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

This problem has been fixed. Please download 7.2.2.1 and try again. Please post your results here if you have time.

I have also edited your email address in your post so that is not available to trolling robotic spam sniffing engines!

I found another problem with 7.2.2.1, at least on the Mac. So I have posted 7.2.2.2 for the Mac and this version seems much more stable so I recommend anyone running on a Mac to update to 7.2.2.2. Will have the PC version posted soon.
