BeatMaker 3 Update

BeatMaker 3, from INTUA, got another beefy update over the weekend. Included in the list of new features is support for AUv3 MIDI plugins like Rozeta.

What's new in BeatMaker 3 v3.0.7:

[Overall improvements]
- Song position readout, in the transport bar, can be switched between BAR:BEATS, MM:SS.MS and SMPTE, simply by pressing it.
- Support of MIDI knob increment/decrement (“infinite” encoders), via MIDI RPN/NRPN.
- The transport bar record button will now be red when recording.
- Added an option, in the recording panel (press the ‘Q’ label on the transport bar), to disable minimal note length quantization.
- It is now possible to show/hide the left global navigation bar while displaying the AUv3 keyboard screen. This gives access to effects and macros from that view.
- It is now possible to tag packs & categories on a selection of files and directories, recursively from the Browser in files mode.

[Sampler & Plugins]
- Support of AUv3 MIDI plugins. Now, BeatMaker 3 will create virtual input MIDI devices for each AUv3 that supports MIDI out. This way, you can route MIDI messages to other plugins and the sampler.
- Added a ruler button on the full-screen sample editor to switch the time reference of the bottom grid between seconds, samples and bars/beats.
- When using the “Add to existing layer” sample load method, get the currently selected layer rather than the last one. The layer can be selected from the editor screen > SAMPLES tab, just below the small pads selector.
- Added move left/right and zoom in/out tools on the mapping editor toolbar.
- The “Stereo to Mono” sample process tool now offers the possibility to use only the left or right channel.
- When selecting a sample from the mapping editor, highlight it as well in the “SAMPLES” listing.
- When drag’n’dropping a sample that is added to an existing layer, auto-select it in the “SAMPLES” listing.
- Added tooltip next to sample markers when moving them, that will follow the current ruler unit (seconds, beats and samples).
- Improvements on the “Zero Snap” tool: adapt scan size to the currently visible range and find the closest zero-cross against all channels.
- Sample editor zoom in/out is now behaving more naturally.
- Sample editor move left and right buttons will now behave more naturally.
- Double-tapping the sample editor “START/END” or “LOOP” button will focus and recenter.
- In the full-screen sample editor, added a marquee above sample & loop start/end markers to make it more obvious the area can be dragged.
- Zoom in/out and move functions are now consistent on all three modes: select, slice and normal.
- “Grid Snap” can now be used in Slices mode in the sample/slice editor.
- Long press on [-] and [+] on the sample editor will resp. fully zoom out or in.

[Sequencer]
- Added a setting for the transport stop behavior: it can either go back to the start of the track, or on the latest position (by pressing the bar / position in SONG mode).

[Bug fixes & engine improvements]
- When drag’n’dropping a sample onto the mapping editor, follow the browser load method.
- Fixed an issue where it was not possible to drag’n’drop a sample after C5 on the mapping editor.
- Fixed Modulation Delay effect that would still apply processing when depth was set to 0%.
- Fixed an issue where exporting sliced sample to Apple Loop will not preserve number of beats and tempo.
- Fixed an issue in the browser where sharing a file from a group would bogusly pick another file.
- Fixed the Auto-Scale feature.
- Fixed a crash that could happen when using samples with bogus metadata.
- Fixed an issue with the validation of purchases on iOS 11.2.
- Fixed double tapping of a value in the parameter panel.
- Fixed an issue where the mixer would not show any level.
- Fixed an issue where audio recording wouldn’t start or record anything.
- Fixed a crash that would happen when exporting slices to a new bank.
- Fixed a browser issue that would happen when dropping a file back onto the browser itself.
- Fixed a crash that would happen when duplicating pads with AUv3.
- Fixed a playback issue with samples with a 1 frame loop.
