"For a long time I wanted a software to cover all the things I needed to understand music and play the piano/guitar, and only now I found it with your easy, intuitive and rich interface and very well written music tutorials."

T. Terchea

"Very nice program. After using it for only a couple of days I already found out it fills the gaps that I missed. I now can make decent songbooks and learning new songs is a treat."

W. van de Leden

"Songtrix gives you countless opportunities to create your own music - hundreds of instruments, effects, styles and sound settings."

"I have learned so much this past year with the aid of Songtrix and other ChordWizard products."

Version Date Changes
v3.01f 20-Dec-2013

Minor update with several improvements and fixes.

- Increase maxmum tempo from 240 to 300 quarter notes per minute
- Fixed fault A390@2209008 that occurs when auditioning substyles that are not defined in the style (especially C & D)

v3.01e 6-May-2013

This is major update with several new features and fixes.
- Fixed bad link on Help-Video Tours menu
- Segment-Edit and Segment-Record popup windows now confirm before closing via the title bar close button to prevent loss of work through accidental mouse click.
- Midi Output Details window now offers Send GM Reset option for devices that are badly affected by it (previously always sent GM Reset)
- Export Song now offers Trim Span option, so that when only a section of a song is eported, it can be either exported trimmed to its actual length, or padded with silence so it synchronises with other tracks that have been exported full length (eg. when both are transferred to DAW software).
- Export now offers to Transpose by up to +/- 12 semitones.  This is useful where the scoring key is not the same as actual pitch, or where a different octave to the notated octave is desired.
- Redeployed the F4 shortcut key to be used for Go To Start. This is more convenient for keyboard control and presents the same button placement as on the transport bar, being next to F5-Play.
- Replaced the Work Sheet Report with the more print-friendly Chord Sheet Report, that can display chords and lyrics, but based on a frame structure.
- Permitted all reports to print only a selected sub-span of the song, instead of only being to print the whole song.
- Fixed a page misalignment issue in Print Preview mode that occurred when zoomed in.
- Renamed the Play Cycle command and window to Play Special, that more accurately reflects the variety of extra playback options that it now offers.
- Added the ability of Play Special to Transpose playback by up to +/- 12 semitones.  This is useful where the scoring key is not the same as actual pitch, or where a different octave to the notated octave is desired.
- Added option to the Delete Bars window Delete All Except Span.  This now permits a crop function, where only the selected span is retained and the extra spans on either side are deleted instead.
- Improved record handling in the Segment-Record window, with melody tracks, on change of key centre, when the Enforce Scale option is being used.
- Improved performace during playback by avoid unneccessary screen updates.
- Improved windows placement when Help invoked on multiple monitor systems.
- Permit Track-Mute to be enabled in Track View during playback
- Permit change of selected events with keyboard in Segment editing views, using the Tab and Shift+Tab keystrokes
- Prevent a single selected bar from being a default selection unless all tracks are selected, for commands like Export Song, Play Special and Select Range, where the default selection is picked up from the active worksheet.

v3.01d 31-Aug-2012

- Rebuild the setup process to an improved step-by-step format within consistent window frame, without background wallpaper
- Include helpful message and information on installing codecs for exporting to MP3 files
- Improve Export to Midi process with mutiple single-track files, so that timing information can be included with each track to improve compatibility with a wider range of DAW software
