Continuing on with our cycle of monthly releases, 3.5.308 contains a pile
of bug fixes and several very useful new features. Almost entirely the
single-handed work of Robin Gareus, you will find significant changes with
panning, auditioning and the very striking addition of explicitly-displayed
signal router in the mixer strips.

As usual you can download it from the usual
and as usual subscribers get this update without cost. Thanks to everyone
for their support (and encouragement).

Once again, the OS X release situation has still not improved, though a
demo 64 bit copy of this version is available (fully featured except that
is has does no saving or restoring of plugin settings, and no plugin
Additions & Changes

   - add visualization of signal flow within tracks and busses
   - Various improvements to panning
      - add stereo-balance panner
      - right click on panner to select a different (compatible) paner
      - major overhaul to VBAP panner so that it works
      - panner GUI tweaks
      - Sends now have their own panner
      - Send panner may be (un)linked with the main panner via the context
      menu of the send. If linked, the send's panning follows the main panner.

      - Add MIDI auditioning (using Ardour's builtin "reasonableSynth")
      - Consider all tracks in a MIDI (SMF) file

      default when using a monitor section)
