Song Surgeon Version 5 – Sneak Peak Video
This week’s sneak peak video provides an overview of the metronome feature found in Version 5. The metronome will, by default, be synced with the tempo of the song. However, you will be be able to unlock it and use the metronome separately.
Song Surgeon Version 5 – Development Update
For those of you that have been following the progress of Version 5, you know that we are behind schedule. In mid-December I made the decision to revise the main interface (GUI) so it would work correctly on ultra-high resolution monitors. I estimated that this would take 2 weeks, it has taken four. Finally, however, I am seeing some light at the end of this tunnel.
The last time I discussed the release date, I mentioned the end of February. I think that is now unlikely and it will more likely be in the middle of March.

p.s. Below is a comment we received recently from a user of Song Surgeon Version 4:
I’m very satisfied with the product. I use it almost every day to change key in karaoke songs, and it is the best product on the market to do that without making the sound bad Also the EQ is one of the best software based EQs I ever used. Thumbs up!
