DJ-Players now auto-size to fill the entire playlist
Yes, finally. While the DJ-Players have a minimum width, they can now scale to occupy the full space of the playlist header.
Note: Richt-Click on the small 'sizer' icon to select the 'Show AlbumArt in Player Panel' option, if you still want to show the cover art of the currently selected track in the playlist header - else the DJ-Player are expanded autoatcially to occupy this space.

Full Ember+ GPIO support added:
The GPIO client has been enhances by a new Ember+ tab including the ability to configure two Ember+ providers and related mappings.
In addition new Ember+ control-commands and macros have been added, e.g. EXEC_SEND_EMBER1/2_GET/SET or ${EMBER1/2:path}.
See the appendix of the user manual for details about these commands/macros.
The Ember+ mapping defines an Ember-Path to a parameter leaf node and allows you to react on any parameter value change.
The Ember+ GPIO interface allows full 2-way communication with any Ember+ supported device/provider, e.g. from Lawo, DHD, Studer, D&R, AVT, ALC, Axia, Jünger, Riedel, Orban, Mandozzi etc.

New Named Remote Connections added
You can now configure so called named connections on the client side – see general settings, section ‘Encoding/Recording’ click on the ‘More Remote Voice Tracking Options…’ button.
A named connection allows you to specify a name for all RVT credentials. Instead of entering all data all the time again and again, you can now just select a named entry from the Server-URL combobox and you're done.

New Upload Remote Voice-Tracking button
Also related to Remote Voice Tracking, a new 'Upload Last RVT Session...' menu item (when you open the menu below the 'New' main ribbon button) was added. It allows you open an older remote voice tracking session file for manual (later) upload.
This also allows you to keep multiple remote voice tracking sessions open in parallel. E.g. when you started a first RVT session by clicking on the 'Remote Voice Tracking...' menu item; you don't need upload it immediately when you close the related playlist locally (simply select 'No' when you are asked to do so).

Support for pre-compressed ~rvt files added
You can now use pre-compressed remote audio file versions. This might speed up your remote voice tracking sessions, as if existing these pre-compressed file will be used instead of compressing them on-the-fly when the RVT session takes place.
The pre-compressed file must reside in the same location as the original filename and have the same filename plus “.~rvt.ext” – where ‘.ext’ is the compressed file extension. E.g.:
Original-File: C:\Music\Test.mp3
PreCompressed: C:\Music\Test.mp3.~rvt.wma

Note!: The pre-compressed version MUST be hidden (using the regular windows file attribute/flag) - as otherwise it would be included in a folder based media lib (hidden files are however excluded with any folder library)!
You can ‘quickly’ create pre-compressed versions from within ProppFrexx. E.g. just use any tracks in a playlist window, select them and then right-click and specify ‘Selection -> Convert to -> Save as WMA…’ In the upcoming Encoding dialog you might then leave the “Save to Folder” empty (this will use the current folder) and specify “${originalfilename}.~rvt” as the Filename.
Whenever the string ~rvt is recognized in an encoding – the related file will now automatically be flagged as ‘hidden’.


New 'Apply Offline Encoding DSPs' added to PFL Player
If you are working with .wav files and have fully loaded a track into a PFL Player’s memory (see general settings, section ‘Player Settings’, ‘Load Tracks into Memory if not bigger than’),
you might then use a new menu called “Apply Offline Encoding DSPs” – when you right-click on the PFL name label.
This will apply the configured Encoding DSPs (see general settings, section ‘Encoding/Recording’) to this file in an offline, meaning destructive way.
This might be helpful e.g. when doing Voice Tracking and you need to apply extra DSPs to such voice files, e.g. in order to normalize or level them using a compressor/processor DSP.
In addition I exchanged two of the existing FX of the DJ-Players FX-Section with a Dynamic Amplification (DAmp) and a Compressor (Comp) effect.
These effects might also be useful in certain Voice Tracking scenarios.


Multi Track Segue Editor is now a Docking Panel
Many users have requested it. The Segue Editor is now a Docking Panel Window and as such can be arranged like any other docking window. Note, that your previous position/location might need to be adjusted once with this version.
Still, it is recommended to close or AutoHide (slide it away - by clicking on the small 'pin' icon of the docking panel) if not used anymore in order to save resources and CPU.
Since if it is permanently open/visible and you specified to Auto-Update it with the current selected playlist track, it will constantly be refreshed.


New Global Statistic Log added for detailed reports
A new global statistic file might be enabled in the general settings, section ‘Logging/History’.
It uses its own format and will be used in a later version as the bases for general reports and statistical analytics.


AES67, AoIP compatible
We have tested our software with several Audio over IP drivers (e.g. Ravenna and Dante) and can report compatibility.
Together with our Ember+ implementation we are now fully AES67 compliant and support all modern Audio over IP standards for a perfect high professional grade integration within any modern infrastructure.
