Bug fixes and new features include :
  • Add 'duplicate track' features
  • Add 'recent files' menu
  • Implement resizing notes with the mouse cursor
  • Allow background tracks in score editor
  • Score editor's notation flags (musical and linear notations) are now saved in .aria file

  • "Select all" and "Unselect all" buttons for background tracks in track properties
  • Add keyboard shortcut to change note velocity (Alt + up/down, Alt + pageup/pagedown)
  • Update to latest version of libjdksmidi


  1. Using the new feature to resize notes with the mouse cursor. Then I want to listen to the modified section; but I can't seem to position the "play" cursor properly, it always starts from the beginning. What am I doing wrong, please?


    1. Hi,

      you can enter the measure to start playing at in the toolbar (see "start" in http://ariamaestosa.sourceforge.net/docs/topbar.png ). Instead of typing this number, you can control-click the measure you can the song to start at in the measures bar at the top (possibly Command-Click if you are using OSX)

  2. Aha! control-click is just what I was looking for. Thank you.
