64 Bit-Support und MIDI Clock In

DSC4285

Akai hat die MPC Software 1.4 rausgetan, die MPC Studio und MPC Renaissance jetzt unter anderem auch in 64 Bit erlaubt. Einige der neuen Features lesen sich zwar eher wie Bugfixes (MIDI-Clock wird jetzt auch empfangen), aber Akai hat anscheinend doch eine ganze Menge der bisherigen Probleme aus der Welt geschafft und auch in den sonst eher kritischen MPC-Forums gibt es im entsprechenden Thread fast nur Positives zu lesen.

Neue Features:
◾ 64-bit support for PC/Mac. The standalone application, VST and Audio Unit plugins now have 64-bit versions.
◾ Ability to load samples when playing.
◾ Ability to export return buses.
◾ Auto-save function (see preferences window).
◾ New AD envelope type (see Program Edit mode).
◾ Control surface buttons auto-repeat when you hold them down (useful for zoom,
locate, etc).
◾ Quick bank/mode selection via button double-tap. You can double-tap shift to enter “shift lock” mode. You can also double-tap bank/mode buttons directly.
◾ Multiple file selection in file browser.
◾ New file browser folder button behavior. The 1-5 buttons retain their stored
location when you move away from them; the location can be set by holding shift as you press.
◾ QLink control of zoom and scroll in the sample editor.
◾ Added a sample overview in sample editor.
◾ LCD sample editor supports zoom and scroll.
◾ MIDI clock receive.
◾ Ability to alphabetically sort the samples list (see button over the Sample list)
◾ New command history window, with the ability to drag the undo position around
(Edit>History…).
◾ Holding shift at startup skips any autoload files.
