Hurrah for the team ;) The changing features is really huge and shows 
how it was a
furious period !! In only one word : bravo !

Install on i386 32bit is ok, and old A3 sessions open without problem :-)

May I add some questions and/or comments between quotes downthere ?
Thanks again for your work !

Does it means that if you select all tracks you do the same in all the 
playlists ?

Is it a way to add a marker when you are in play or record mode ?

That's a good option to have by default

Have tried just now and, wow... remembers what you can do on hardware

Save a lot of time when you have only 1 screen !

Could it be possible, in some future, to add an option or whatever to 
say to the GUI
something like "when it's over -10dB, color the meter (and/or box above 
it) in orange" ?

If it's what allows to set /edit/preferences/interface/font scaling to 
it probably will save my vision and/or allow to put of these F* glasses !!

What is it please ?

Cool to set it quick !

When a track is not active, do you delete it when clean up the session 
and flush basket ?
