Brainspawn has announced the release of version 2.0 of Forte.

Improvements include

Adapt to New Hardware:
  • Powerful wizard to change MIDI port mappings or audio driver configuration.
  • Easily adapt to hardware changes.
  • Save multiple hardware profiles in a rack file and load the rack on multiple computers with no remapping required. Select from several compatible profiles on rack load (PRODUCER EDITION exclusive).

Control Surface Support:
  • Control Forte with Frontier TranzPort or Mackie Control.
  • Create user-defined control surface definitions.
  • Mute/Unmute instruments, bypass/unbypass effects, and mix volume in realtime.

Import Scenes and Songs:
  • Reuse Scenes and Songs by importing them from other racks.

Enhanced MIDI Processing:
  • Hold notes across a scene change even if the new scene has different note filtering.
  • Add an initial value to controller mappings. Initial values are set when on scene change.
  • Toggle mode without an initial value for improved stomp-box support.

MIDI Output From Plugins:
  • Plugins that can output MIDI now appear as virtual MIDI input ports to other plugins.

Enhanced Audio Configuration:
  • Dynamically choose ASIO driver when you create the first bus. No need to select from preferences or restart.

Improved Plugin Management and Compatibility:
  • Improved plugin menus.
  • Spotlight search for plugins by name, vendor, or file path.
  • Route MIDI to insert effects with the same full level of flexibility as instruments, including per-port and per-channel routing and key range mapping with transpose.

Two Editions: Performer and Producer Editions:
  • Performer Edition: Similar to previous versions of Forte but with “more convenient and hardware change adaptation.”
  • Producer Edition: Configure and choose from multiple hardware profiles and effortlessly move racks between computers. This includes a site-license to install Forte on up to 10 computers.
