Time for another news post. The Audio I/O is coming along nicely in git, specifically JACK users will be pleased I hope. It's now possible to create new Audio Tracks in Traverso that promote themselves to JACK, so you can route the Track signals in your favorite patchbay.
The new SubGroups make it easier to apply plugins to a group of Tracks, or adjust the volume of a group of instruments, by routing the AudioTrack's output to a SubGroup
Traverso is all about workflow, and we're working right now very hard to improve that a lot by adding sophisticated navigation features.
The most interesting ones are: Track finder, find a track by hitting the K key, do a (partial) search for the Track you want to work on, hit enter, and the mouse cursor will jump to the found Track, and you can start editing right away.
Another great feature is the possibility to browse through items by keyboard. Say, the mouse cursor is on an AudioClip. You can now browse to the next/previous clip by using the arrow keys. This also works for browsing through Tracks.
The Work Cursor usability is also being worked on a great deal. Both qwerty and mouse users now can use the Work Cursor in different ways, to improve the workflow.
Example: [ W ] (keep W pressed) will start moving the workcursor, either by mouse movement or arrow keys.
Moving it faster by arrow keys: press up/down arrow key.
Moving it to next/previous snap position: hit < S > : toggle S(nap).
Start browsing through markers: we're still holding W, then < M > : toggle browse Markers on / off.
When you've found the marker you want to edit, release W and start moving the Marker around with [ D ], the D(rag) key with which all items can be moved in Traverso!
Now when you're done with that Marker, continue working on say the clip you're working on and the Marker will be deactivated when moving mouse or Work Cursor.
And these are just a couple of examples, you'll have much more to look out for!
