After many months of hard work, we’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of Farrago 1.5, the latest and greatest version of our soundboard software.
This free update is a big one, with over 30 new features and enhancements. Read more about it below, or just visit Farrago’s product page to download Farrago 1.5 now.
Massive New List Mode Functionality
The most notable change you’ll see in Farrago 1.5 is the overhauled List mode. When using a set in List mode, Farrago helps you run linear performances, from well-planned podcasts to theater shows and other live events. You can order audio clips, attach notes for reference, and play it all in sequence.
With this update, Farrago’s List mode has gained tremendous power. Playback can be configured so the next tile is queued up and ready to be started with a single key press. Alternately, you can have Farrago automatically play through your list of audio, with optional fades between tiles. The per-tile notes are now much more robust, with working URLs and inline editing. Best of all, the easy “Reset List” button makes it a breeze to reuse your lists over and over again.
Of course, if you don’t know exactly what sounds you’ll want ahead of time, Farrago’s Grid mode remains as powerful as ever.
Duck Output With the Powerful New Master Volume
Another major update in Farrago 1.5 can be found in the enhanced Master Volume switch, which now offers two distinct settings (Master Volume A and Master Volume B).
These distinct levels make it possible to duck Farrago’s audio down, and fade it back up, with a quick mouse click or keyboard press. And if you need to temporarily mute output, that’s now just a click away as well.
Substantial Interaction Updates
For this release, we also spent a good deal of time improving interactions throughout the application. The Now Playing area at the top of the main window now shows more detail, with playback status shown visually. The Sets list can now be manually sorted, and both it and the Inspector can be re-sized. Farrago’s main window can also be made quite a bit narrower, for use on small displays. Tiles have been polished as well, with better text sizing, and a new right-click contextual menu for fast access to many controls.
All these changes, and many others, make Farrago more effortless to use than ever before.
Dozens of Additional Features and Improvements
This version brings dozens more improvements and features, including per-tile output controls, enhanced MIDI controls with support for sliders and knobs, the ability to temporarily disable tiles, and much, much more. Have a look at the “Release Notes” window, found in Farrago’s “Help” menu, to read about all the changes.
