Jul 29, 2019
Complex chords support:
When editing chords, you can add 4th chord notes to your taste.

Audiobus integration:
Fortamento can now be configured as MIDI Sender in Audiobus.

Navigation between bars while in editing mode:
We've added arrow buttons on the top of the editing screen, so you don't need to jump between main and editing screens when editing multiple bars.

MIDI output "off" state:
In previous version, active MIDI session was displayed in bold font. This was confusing to many, so there's a dedicated "off" state now.

Fixed a bug when the first note would be slightly delayed.
