forScore 9: Audio Utilities

| News

Our next big update is coming this summer, and today we’re excited to show you another change we’re making with forScore 9.

Since the beginning, forScore’s metronome has been a core feature and an invaluable tool for many of our users. Later, we added utilities like the pitch pipe and tuner, but with little room in the control bar along the top of the screen these new additions were buried in the tools menu.

With forScore 9, that’s changing: the metronome, pitch pipe, and tuner are now all accessible from the main view. A segmented control allows you to switch between them quickly, and forScore updates the toolbar icon and remembers your choice so it’s always just a tap away. We’re proud of the work we’ve done to make these utilities easy to use, and now we’re giving all three of them a chance to shine.

That’s not all, though! We’ve also added a new accessibility setting that lets you customize the metronome’s ‘tick’ and ‘tock’ sounds. If you’ve ever had trouble hearing the default sounds (or if you simply prefer a different style), just add two .wav files to your forScore library and select them in the “Metronome sounds” section of the accessibility panel.
