New Preset Performances

Maintain Related Edit Screen

If you change between Parts that use two different tone generator types (for example, AWM2 to FM-X), MONTAGE maintains the related edit mode. For example, if you are assigning controllers on an AWM2 Part and change to an FM-X Part, you will stay on the controller assign page. This is very useful for doing batch edits:

"Click Setting" Shortcut

The "Play/Record" screen now has a "Click Setting" shortcut for changing metronome parameters.

Category Search "All" Reset

This enhancement resets the main Category to "All" when changing Bank, Attribute or performing a Name Search.

Larger Font Size Selection

Setting font size to "large" now makes all Category and Sub-category text larger within Category Search.

Global Tempo and Global A/D

The new Global override settings are a welcome addition. These settings allow you to maintain tempo and A/D set ups between different Performances.

Global Tempo overrides any Performance-specific tempo settings. This is useful when searching for an Arpeggio or Drum groove that works with a specific tempo:
