Looking at what’s new in this app it’s less of an update and more like a whole new app. The new stuff is huge! Take a look:
- New design.
- Easier navigation between the various screens.
- Day or Night background. Set manually, or automatically according to your location’s sunrise/sunset.
- iPad only: CPU meter, sunrise and sunset display.
- Looping: 8 cue/loop points (on iPad, 6 on iPhone/iPod touch).
- Modify cues/loops on the fly, while playback goes.
- Max. 16 beats long automatic slip mode for reverse.
- Beat and block-aligned seeking.
- Pitch range is automatically adjusted, if the current pitch value doesn’t fit.
- Vinyl Vision and waveform display is now super crisp.
- Easier navigation.
- Auto or bounce loop, reloop.
- From 64 beats down to 1/256 beat.
- iPad only: 128 beats, triolic beats (1/3, 3/4).
- Temp pitch control.
- Switchable beat-snap.
- Slip mode (if on, the track goes silently “untouched” under the loop).
- Double/half bpm adjust.
- 1/8 for echo is back.
- Separate sharp switches for echo and reverb (sharp on = effect turns off immediately, no “tail”).
- Peak hold for VU meter with 3 settings (fades out, runs out, off).
- Touch handling improvements, a touch is exclusive to one fader (no accidental movement of another fader nearby).
- On track load, EQ can: reset all bands, reset mid/high and cut bass, or do nothing.
- On track load, gain can: adjust automatically, reset, or do nothing.
- You can choose between CUE or HOT CUE for the mixer/effects screen.
- Improved punch fader mechanism to avoid accidental jumps.
- Tracks screen cleaned up, convenient output mode selector and other things under the “More” button.
- New playlist sort option: “Natural” to show a playlist’s tracks in the custom order you set up in iTunes.
- New track sort option: “Comment”, to show tracks in the order of the first word in the comments metadata. Useful to sort by key for example.
- Automatic marker shows if a track was played in the last 4 hours. Option in settings: it displays minutes too (30/60/90/120/240).
- Manual marker switching (reset all possible too).
- Better BPM detection.
- Not just analyze all: analyze specific tracks or lists only.
- The database now keeps your bpm and cue point data even if you remove a track from your device. If you upload it again, bpm and cue points are back.
- The database is available at “File Sharing” in iTunes for backup or further processing. It’s a standard SQLite db now.
- Smaller amount of metadata stored (around 10 kb per minute maximum, so less than 15 MB for 24 hours of music).
IMPROVED MULTIPLE DEVICE HANDLING
- More than two devices nearby? No problem: device pairing for BPM sync.
- Automatic wireless cue points and bpm import from nearby devices, no need to sync the metadata database to multiple devices.
- Most settings moved to the Settings app (still on-the-fly changeable).
- Stereo PFL button was “inverted” – fixed.
- EQ remained active in Classic Club and Double Deck output modes – fixed.
- Track analyzing was overwriting bpm (and sometimes cue points) – fixed.
