SmartMusic Update March 2015

On Tuesday, March 17, we plan to release a SmartMusic update that includes two new features.

Sticky Settings

The first is something we call “Sticky Settings,” which refers to preferences you configure in SmartMusic. With the update installed, many settings will be retained when you switch between different titles within exercises and methods. These settings include Click, My Part, Cursor, Accompaniment, Voice CountOff, Click: Accent Downbeats, Click: Play Subdivisions, and CountOff.

Now when you begin a method book, and set up the first exercise the way you like, your settings will be retained in all subsequent exercises, too.

Improve SmartMusic

The second new feature is a means for you to help us to make SmartMusic better in ways that benefit you. After installing the update you will be asked whether you want to submit anonymous usage data to MakeMusic. This data will be used to help improve future versions of SmartMusic; no personally-identifiable information is ever collected.

Should you change your mind about sharing this data at any time, you can change this setting at Help > Setup.

To ensure you receive this and future SmartMusic updates, go to Help > Check for Updates… and confirm that “Automatically download and apply updates” is checked.
