The new MultitrackStudio Remote app for iPad turns your iPad into a powerful remote control for MultitrackStudio:

  • Add and control tracks, groups, effect returns (up to 3) and the master section.
  • Add and control effects and MIDI instruments.
  • Toggle the Monitor / Punch / Sound On Sound buttons.
  • Control the click track and the MIDI Keyboard Splitter.

The iPad must communicate via WIFI (3G etc. is not supported). Furthermore the iPad and your computer must both be connected to your home network.

For more information please see the manual.

2. More effect slots

Mixer sections can now optionally have 6 effect slots rather than just 3. There's an 'Effect Slots' setting the the Preferences window.

6 slot songs are fully compatible with 3-slot MultitrackStudio versions, old or new. The extra effects will appear in a Multi Effect.

3. Half Solo

Double clicking a Solo button invokes 'half solo': other tracks will be attenuated by 12dB rather than muted fully. The Solo button reads 'H' in half solo mode.

4. VST/AU effect midi output recording

Some plugins generate MIDI data ("MIDI Guitar" for example). This MIDI output is now merged with the data coming from MIDI input devices, so you can record it to a MIDI track.

To use this feature you should make sure that:

  1. The plugin is in a recording audio track.
  2. Soft Monitoring is enabled.
