What's new in FretPet

Version 1.3.3:
  • This is a bugfix release to address problems with the integrity of exported MIDI files. We've been using FretPet with the Alesis IO Dock and our favorite iPad synthesizers, and it's been a lot of fun. To make this experience better for everyone we're working on improved MIDI options and file export for one of our favorite new sequencers, SunVox!
  • Fixed a MIDI export problem
  • Known Issues:
    • White lines appear when resizing documents in OS X 10.7 and 10.8.

This is a superb programme for anyone interested in the guitar. It is astonishingly flexible, with a depth of features and a wealth of possibilities that is quite unique. As if that weren't enough, the developer is the most responsive and helpful one I've ever encountered. Highly recommended.
