Metro 6.3 update to deliver many key changes

updated 02:55 pm EDT, Wed May 18, 2005

Metro 6.3 update

of version 6.3 is now available to Metro users. The new version is a $30 update that improves compatibility with Mac OS X 10.4. Archive menu has been changed to 'Track Operations' which now includes Freeze, Group Freeze, Thaw, Group and Ungroup Tracks. The new Ultra Rhythm Explorer will automatically create "amazingly intelligent drum beats, bass lines and guitar rhythms." It also has the ability to insert notes, record multiple patterns to a track and even insert a random chord progression from your chord progression library. Also introduced with the update is the ability to manage Chord progressions with the library functions save, delete and insert. Additionally, Core Audio Device output names to are now written to Metro documents.

Other changes include:

  • Prior to 6.3, MIX was rendering all soft-synths regardless of selection! After 6.3 only selected tracks will be included in the mix. This makes it more consistent with audio tracks.
  • Playback Scrolling option called edit mode. When in edit mode windows will not change pages. This make it much easier to perform real time edits.
  • Group Tracks.
  • Chord names are automatically parsed while typing in markers.
  • Marker times are now quantized based on the note quantization settings when created.
  • Markers can now be copied from the marker window and pasted (or merged) from any data window.
  • The 4 cue points are now saved in each section.
  • The jukebox now converts files to MP3, MP4, Ogg, etc. in the order they are displayed in the jukebox window.
  • Setting track loops no longer requires playback to be stopped first.
  • Rewire support for publishing tempo and time signature to rewire slaves!
  • Chord within Markers are now transposable.
  • The tracks contextual popup has been expanded to include more items such as 'Track Operations', 'Mix or Render', 'Export track' and more.

    Metro pricing starts at $70.
