Song Views-Switch between Practice and Tabbing – Capo now shows you what’s most important depending on what you’re currently doing. While listening and practicing, the waveform is front and center with quick and easy region creation. When tabbing out a song, the spectrogram is there to help you pick out notes, and dive deeper into the performance. Use the popup button in the window’s title bar to change Song Views, or use the command-1 or command-2 keyboard shortcuts.
Transcription Playhead – Locks the playhead in place, re-starting playback from the same point until you move the playhead elsewhere.
Touch Bar Support – Quickly navigate around the song using the waveform overview scrubber, and access common playback controls. You can even customize the Touch Bar to include the controls you use most often.
Markers are back – Lots of you really miss the markers from earlier releases, so we brought them back! Hit the ‘M’ key to drop a marker, or use the button in the toolbar.
Improved Loop / Region behavior – To loop a region, just click to select it, and hit play! No more confusing loop toggle to worry about. Regions can now also be modified while they’re looping, and when a region is selected, using the left/right arrow keys will move between the regions in the song.
Highly Improved Scrubbing – We put together a nifty new bit of code for this release that lets you scrub over your track and “hold” a note frozen in time as you drag the playhead. To engage scrubbing, click and drag the playhead around the timeline. This feature is especially helpful to identify individual notes and find where they start while you’re tabbing out a song using the spectrogram.
Show and Hide the Chords, Tablature – If you’d prefer to not see them, or you’re short on screen space, you can toggle the Chords and Tablature notation in either of the Practice or Tabbing views. This is great for those that want a “bare-bones” Capo experience, and those with the golden ears!
Full-Screen Support – Capo now supports full-screen mode. Finally!
Fixed an issue that caused file exports to fail in some circumstances.
Capo no longer consumes excessive memory when loading and closing many documents over time.
The discrete, high-performance GPU is no longer enabled by Capo, and thus battery life should be greatly extended while using Capo with Macs that are equipped with discrete GPUs.
When the pitch of a song is modified, that change is now reflected while scrubbing audio
Fixed some parts of the UI where incorrect fonts were specified
Chords are no longer rendered with accidentals that are overly “spaced out” on macOS 10.11+
When displaying chord inversions (e.g. the ‘F#’ in D/F#), accidentals are now rendered the same as the root note
Fixed an issue that would cause audio playback to get stuck during playback after rapid seeking-usually near the start of the file
