All iTunes album artwork is supported including covers acquired via iTunes "Get Artwork" command. MIDI Settings dialog has new controller presets for American Audio's VMS2 and VMS4, updated Numark and Hercules presets, and new options for creating multiple custom presets you can import and export. MIDI overhaul with new commands for Loop Half, Double, Reloop, library and playlist navigation, scrolling, deck loading, support for high-res jog wheels, inverse pitch sliders, user assigned LEDs, additional variable input options, independent mid-EQ, the ability to dismiss dialogs with any MIDI button, and overall performance boost. Wave Viewer for visual beatmixing is smoother when multitouch scratching, scrubbing, or click-dragging to reverse direction (especially when pitch-locked), and does not autostart when clicked to allow for click-drag cueing and keyboard focus, and no longer "rumbles" when at rest after a multitouch scroll cue. Auto Volume Control function overhauled to be independent of the Mixer's faders allowing for additional track boosting, with a gain meter displayed in the fader's track. Many interface refinements: Sharper text, more Lion-style scrollbars and related fixes (respects "always show scrollbars"), new list headers, wider red play marks, edge-pinned track info popups, new drag-n-drop cursor icons, and search results can be sorted easier. Edit Media dialog includes fixes for manually setting volumes, multi-select editing, category dialog checkboxes, using "Edit Next" from the playlist browser, and more. Decks include fixes for drag-n-drop, Sound Check, setting outputs, BPM match, and instantly reports missing files. The Dock icon, playlists, and decks now support direct Finder file drops to instant cue tracks instead of only importing to the library. Mixer's auto crossfade speed is consistent from any fader start position, and can be stopped mid-fade. iTunes Playlists load faster, supports multi-selection drag-n-drop, type-to-select, and can be refreshed with a single click. Preferences are read correctly on 10.4 Tiger. Revised User's Guide with new info, screenshots, and more concise examples. [Pro] Event list columns can be resized, files can be double-clicked in the Finder to load, AutoSeg is reset for events that start playlists, time-based events work for all language localizations, Before or After Category events no longer trigger at midnight, Interrupt field can be toggled with a click, and the Open Playlist event's dialog is resizable. [Pro] Mic On/Off has a new option to use a smaller buffer for less latency, and ducks the master volume faster. [Pro] Logging: The FTP upload sends "n/a" info when the playlist is stopped, and Live365 updates send "ID/PSA" metadata when using Break tracks. [Pro] Hot Keys adds a "Same as Next Song (Preview)" output option, supports Finder drag-n-drop, and holding the option key while drag-n-drop into the category list replaces the track's category. [Pro] Library Tools adds a Convert Artist "Last, First" to "First Last" function that maintains last name sorting, Save/Open Library from Text command now supports the Comments field, and Scan For Missing Files now saves the library post-scan. [Pro] Request List notes can be edited and supports multiple select drag-n-drop into the playlist. [Pro] Rules: If set to automatically remove offending tracks, it properly loops the playlist if the last track is removed, and fixed a scrollbar bug when rule warnings are displayed. [Pro] Video: The Escape key exits full screen mode reliably, video size menus function regardless if a video is playing, and certain MPEGs no longer cause Automatic Volume Control to malfunction. [Pro] Ambient Video Playlist displays time/loop info when opening saved playlists, and it's faster to multi-select remove tracks. [Pro] Stream playback performs better on OS X Lion. [Pro] Sync Shared Library command works in cases where a track is sitting idle with AutoSeg Off. [Pro] Scheduler's Loop Playlist checkbox properly modifies the document to allow saving. Various other optimizations, interface changes, and bug fixes.
