This version represents one year of intensive efforts by MuTant team-project members and a complete re-structuring of Antescofo architecture by José Echeveste, and Jean-Louis Giavitto; and Thomas Coffy for AscoGraph.
- New Action Language for authoring of live electronics, including :
- Continuous actions (Curve)
- New, more intuitive syntax (Group, Loop) for older syntax (GFWD, LFWD) with backward compatibility (see note)
- Possibility of including dynamic expressions everywhere (delays or periods as variables or expressions)
- Better handling of synchronization strategies
- Improvements in Antescofo's Score Follower especially for polyphonic instruments and voice
- Upgrade to 64bit objects for Max and PureData
- Antescofo is now accompanied by its dedicated score visual editor AscoGraph with the following features:
- Double-click (Max only) on object brings up AscoGraph
- Instant communication with Max Object through internal OSC
- Automatic conversion of MIDI and MusicXML files to Antescofo format (drag-n-drop to AscoGraph)
- Visual instantaneous sync between AscoGraph and Antescofo (Max or PureData) for monitoring during live performance
- Visual editing of electronic actions (especially for Curves)
- Updated Tutorial and Help file
- Antescofo Language Reference Document
