You can now audition 7 different RealTracks performances,to choose the one that works the best with your song, with a single click! This works for the entire track, or the highlighted section of a track. Choose one, or multiple to add to the song. For example, if you want a pedal steel riff for 4 bars, highlight that region, and listen to the 7 selections, and choose the riff that works best. Or if you want 2 “different” acoustic guitar strumming parts, choose 2 from the 7 different generated  parts, they will be written as to different tracks, and contain different strumming. We call this “Same butdifferent” since the strumming patterns are on the same chords, but are different performances.

Questions asked when songs loaded (requiring a response) are now changed to yellow flash messages, thatdon't require a response but can be clicked on if you want to do the function: Styles can now contain extra information, such as: Custom Panning, Reverb, and Tone Control settings. Styles can also store Audio FX to use with tracks,and specific VST synths to use. Styles can also be made to specify “simple” variations for the RealTracks,or use Direct Input Guitars. Note: For styles that store extra information (such as panning, reverb, tone, substyle names, plug-in namesetc.), an extra file with a .stx extension is saved. So for zzjazz.sty, you would also have a zzjazz.stx file,and both of them should be present for the features to be present. STX files are not needed for most styles, just ones that need to store this extra information. [Nt+] [Nt-] - Note+ and Note- buttons on the Guitar Window .
