What's New

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.
