AscoGraph v0.2 Release Notes

  • Drag-n-Drop MIDI or MusicXML files for automatic conversion, including multi-track features and available extended techniques.

  • Import/Export color schemes using XML files (thanks to Kai Yves Linden @kyl)

  • Double-click to select WORD, Triple-click to select LINE in the Editor

  • Right-click to sync between Editor and Visual modes

  • Zoom in/out using [ and ] or with CMD+ mouse scroll

  • Menu re-organization, including Font load option

  • NOTE: the new text editor is still experimental software -- particularly, the "Replace All" and the visual editing of Curves (using the "Apply" button) can produce unpredictable results. Back up your work!

This version of AscoGraph enjoyed contributions and design by Grig Burloiu @rvirmoors; and contributions by Robert Piechaud @piechaud for complete revamp of Score Importer.

Antescofo development team is grateful to the user community for their continuous engagement.
