25
                    (useful for drums: corresponding trigger any parameter layers are cleared)
-
 
26
    </UL>
-
 
27
   <LI> improved ALL button behaviour
-
 
28
-
 
29
   <LI> New worflow for PATTERN page: GP 1/2, 5/6, 9/10, 13/14 allow to select group as well<BR>
-
 
30
     (especially interesting for Antilog Frontpanel: Selection buttons can be used for mutes)

-
 
38
     a file editor:
-
 
39
     <UL CLASS=CL>
-
 
40
     <LI> MIDI remote key (or CC)
-
 
41
     <LI> Track Selection CC

42
     <LI> MIDI OUT Runtime Status Optimisation
-
 
43
     <LI> MENU button assignments
-
 
44
     </UL>
-
 
45
-
 
46
   <LI> support for "Shadow Out", which will forward the MIDI events of the currently selected
-
 
47
     track to a specified MIDI port and channel (e.g. can be used to visualize played notes
-
 
48
     with an external device). Select the port/channel in the OPTIONS page.
-
 
49
-
 
50
   <LI> Metronome page removed. Please configure the metronome function in the Options page.
-
 
51
-
 
52
   <LI> Pattern banks can't be modified by default anymore, because they are typically
-
 
53
     assigned to group 1/2/3/4, changed bank assignments can confused users
-
 
54
     to much. If somebody still finds this feature useful: it can be enabled in the
-
 
55
     Options page
-

63
   <LI> new parameter type "Chord3" provides an alternative set of 108 chords.<BR>
-
 
64
     Thanks to EsotericLabs for providing the chord table!
-
 
65
-
 
66
   <LI> notes in edit screen are displayed transposed now
-
 
67
-

   <LI> drum tracks: random probability layer now working as intended

   <LI> layers are now initialized for 6 notes polyphony by default (8 layers, 128 steps)
-
 
71
-
 
72
   <LI> optionally pattern changes don't re-send the PC/bank settings.<BR>
-

<LI><I>V4.092</I>
-
 
79
  <UL CLASS=CL>
-
 
80
   <LI>new parameter layers for track specific root note and scale<BR>
-
 
81
     Root selection strategy: if Root is assigned to any parameter 
-
 
82
     layer of a track, the layer can either select the global root 
-
 
83
     selection ("Glb") or set the root note for each step explicitely.<BR>
-
 
84
     The global root selection is configured in the FX->Scale page,
-
 
85
     it's either "Keyb" (for MIDI keyboard entry) or C, C#, ... B<BR>
-
 
86
     The local root selection is C, C#, ... B<BR>
-
 
87
     Notes and Chords will be transposed accordingly if the track is in
-
 
88
     Normal mode (and not in Transpose or Arpeggiator mode)<BR>
-
 
89
     Similar for Scale: it can override the globally configured scale
-
 
90
     of the FX->Scale page for each step.
-
 
91
     
-
 
92
   <LI> new drum configurations: 4*16/2*64, 4*16/2*128, 4*16/1*256
-
 
93
-
 
94
   <LI> new configuration option in Track Mode page: "Note Last/First"<BR>
-
 
95
     Allows to specify, if the transposer should take the last or first
-
 
96
     played note (previously it always played the last note)
-
 
97
-
 
98
   <LI> new configuration option in Track Mode page: "STrg" (Step Trigger).<BR>
-
 
99
     If activated, the step progression will be controlled from the transposer
-
 
100
     bus, hence it can either be triggered from a loopback track or from an 
-
 
101
     external MIDI device (MIDI keyboard, sequencer, etc.)<BR>
-
 
102
     Note that each track can be assigned to a dedicated transpose bus
-
 
103
     (4 busses are available), this allows to control 4 independent step progressions
-
 
104
     for all 16 tracks.
-
 
105
-
 
106
   <LI> individual steps of CC, PitchBender, Program Change and Aftertouch
-
 
107
     layers can now be disabled so that they won't play.<BR>
-
 
108
     Turn the encoder to the rightmost position (value 128)<BR>
-
 
109
     Also the init value has been changed: for these layers, the steps
-
 
110
     are now disabled by default.<BR>
-
 
111
     For CCs please change the init value by yourself in the UTIL->OPT
-
 
112
     page (option #12: Initial CC value)
-
 
113
-
 
114

117
     button is pressed.
