Pro Tools 2020.5 is out so the Flo Tools Team is right on it with Flo Tools version 2020.5. See how those numbers go together nicely? Yeah, we thought so too. There’s a bug fix and a little maintenance—nothing major.
Can we interest you in a Flo Tools update? Of course, we can! It’s about time, eh? What’s it been? A year? Well, almost a year, it turns out. With the release of Pro Tools 2020.3, the Flo Tools Team has made a few tweaks to stay on top of things.
Oh, if you only knew what excitement the Flo Tools team has been experiencing over the last several months… Over what, you might ask? (And we thought you might ask.)
Woah—2018.7? That numbering scheme sounds awfully Avid-like. Well, yeah but other companies are doing it too. It’s kind of simple and it works but, who knows, maybe next time we’ll call it Flo Tools MMXVIII.IX.
Wow, it’s been a while, eh? As always, we have some small stuff and some big stuff and maybe a few in between. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Changes, changes, changes! Yep, things are always changing. As we all know, that’s the only thing that stays the same. The Flo Tools Team is always making changes, mostly to try and make your experience of using Pro Tools better and more efficient. This time around, the changes in Flo Tools were necessitated by changes in Pro Tools 2018.1.
As always, the Flo Tools Team has been thinking of ways to make your use of Pro Tools easier and more efficient. Often, these are simple things that make a huge difference. Flo Tools 2.3.0 introduces a few such features. In fact, they’re so simple that besides foregoing the mp3 demonstration, we even considered releasing the new version without a “What’s New” and have our users discover the new features by surprise but then where’s the fun in that?
OK, so if you’d rather be surprised by the new features, feel free to skip the rest of these scintillating paragraphs and stumble across things on your own but, if you want a heads up on what to expect, read on.
Isn’t it about time for a Flo Tools update? We sure think so. We’ve added a few shortcuts to help report things like edit modes and playback status. Dragging clips to the timeline used to be tedious or even impossible. Guess what? Not anymore.
Perhaps most exciting is the new facility for MIDI editing. We think you’ll love it.
It’s true, there’s a new version of Flo Tools out today, version 2.01. There are a minor fixes for the installer, and a new feature to automatically check for updates.
What’s new in Flo Tools 2.0, you ask? Well, sit back and let us tell you!
New major features include Plug-In Views, Flo Tools Num Pad, and Flo Tools Mouse.
