Capo has a fresh, new look on the Mac! We’ve integrated the Heads-Up Display and Control Strip that first appeared in Capo touch, and now offer an all-new dark appearance that’s exclusive to macOS Mojave.
We also made numerous enhancements to existing features based on your feedback and bug reports. Keep those emails coming—we love hearing from our customers!
- Support for Dark Mode in macOS Mojave.
- The Heads-Up Display now occupies the bottom of the main window, and allows for a wider view of your song’s content.
- The new Control Strip keeps Capo’s various controls organized, and discoverable.
- In addition to supporting Dark Mode, we took care to respect your preferred system-wide accent color wherever it seemed appropriate to do so.
- You can make Capo’s window shorter now that we moved the Heads-Up Display. This is great for users that like to use Capo alongside other apps.
- We split the Pitch slider into separate Transpose and Pitch sliders to match Capo touch for iOS. Now when you fine-tune old recordings using the Pitch slider, you no longer need to re-adjust pitch when transposing the song. (Existing Projects with combined pitch slider settings will automatically get split across the two sliders.)
- Capo now lets you change the Metronome volume separately from the Song and Note volumes using the new Mixer controls found in the PLAYBACK control strip.
- We enlarged the Isolation controls (now accessible from the PLAYBACK control strip) to make the pan energy display easier to see, and to allow finer adjustments in sliders.
- The Metronome and Count-In settings (now in the PLAYBACK control strip) no longer allow you to set a Count-In without the Metronome click. Now when Count-In is enabled, Capo will always play the click and the 1-, 2-, or 4-bar count-in only applies when a looping region is active. This is now consistent with the behavior in Capo touch.
- We moved the Song Views popup to the Heads-Up Display—at the bottom-right of the window—so that it remains visible in Full-Screen mode, and can display view-related controls to its left.
- Region titles now appear much larger, making them easier to read.
- We switched from an included help file to using online documentation, which is easier for us to keep up-to-date, and easier for you to read. Win-win!
- The resizing handles on regions have also grown larger to make it more obvious that regions can be resized, and also to make it clear when the region is active.
- You can now de-select a Region (and disable looping) by simply clicking on it.
- Movement between Regions—whether initiated by their keyboard shortcuts or control strip buttons—behaves in a way that makes sense depending on the current selection and playback state.
- When editing chords, shapes are now drawn the same as in the timeline.
- Keyboard shortcuts listed in the Control menu no longer show ‘fn’ entries beside certain commands.
- The command names shown in the Edit Keyboard/MIDI Commands window now match the titles for the same commands in the main menu.
- Capo no longer crashes when dragging chords on macOS Mojave.
- Regions no longer flash while resizing during playback.
- In the Export Notes and Chords… save panel, Capo now uses the song title rather than “Untitled” as its default filename.
- When seeking during playback, the playhead no longer appears before the chosen playhead position.
- When editing chords, certain partial search strings no longer return empty results.
