An Attract version of Notator, with a mix of new features and improvements on existing ones that extend its functionality. Highlights of the features include: Importing several MIDI-instruments into Notator (improves MIDI Chain) multitrack MIDI recording facilities (Improved MIDI Chaining) in-depth input mixer control (Audacity-style) a comprehensive (and well thought out) pattern editor in which every function is geared to make optimum use of your creativity, a streamlined arrangement page that does away with countless conundrums and makes it simple to choose multiple multi tracks and drive them with a single button and a new powerful Biaxial 2-up display with adjustable Rotation of the two views 2-up i.e. two tracks/two comps displayed at once at optimum size in both the horizontal and vertical planes (Pick to arrange) arrange different sections of your song, record them, arrange them and play them back from one screen (great for 3-piece sections) record MIDI from any instrument and from your Akai or other MIDI interface (MIDI Chain) perform velocity sensitive playback with a large selection of functions and options (Playbacks) record MIDI and export to MP3/WAV files (Replay) back up your content with incremental backups before you begin to edit (Backup) store your content in the new backup format (backtrack ) allow the user to select exactly which part of a song to record when (Command recording... or Command and record) search for patterns in your content, and seek to any place in any pattern and over any number of patterns (Pattern seek) record the MIDI from any MIDI source and use any number of MIDI channels (MIDI Chain) re-record tracks, using the material already stored in the backup file (Tracking recording n.b. this is the only function where files are stored somewhere other than the backup volume.
Quantisation options are many, and cover the same sort of range as Notator - including swing settings. Also similar to Notator is the layout of the Event List window where the lowest level shows notes and MIDI information such as pitchbend and controller data, but it is possible to step up through the levels to see sequences, too. Display filters allow you to work more easily on one type of data such as notes or program changes and there are options to select objects of the same type for global editing. Neat.The Hyper Edit window is, again, based on the one in Notator. It can be used for creating drum tracks and for drawing in control changes and other MIDI data. The Matrix Editor is a grid or piano roll editor and shows notes as oblong bars on a grid alongside a piano keyboard. I must confess I never use the Matrix editor in Notator, but I know many musicians who virtually live there. 7211a4ac4a
