What's new in this version:

Recording to the Arranger or Launcher:
- To record on the Arranger timeline: new audio recordings are automatically added as comping take lanes when passing non-looping audio clips
- For "cycle recording," just enable the Arranger loop
- To record into the Clip Launcher: from the Play menu, enable Record as Comping Takes, and set an appropriate Take Length
- Clips containing take lanes show the comping icon on their top right edge
- Since comping lives within the clip, comping clips can be freely dragged between the Launcher and Arranger
- Since comping lives within the clip, comping clips can be saved to your library, with take lanes intact and editable

Effortless Editing:
- When a clip containing takes is selected, the Detail Editor Panel displays the Comping expression view for editing
- Each take lane is given its own color for visualizing the sources used, and each take can be renamed
- Take lanes can be reordered by dragging their headers
- Dragging over a portion of any take lane to create a comping region
- Clicking on any take lane uses that take for the nearest comping region and selects the region
- Pressing [UP] or [DOWN] moves the comp region to the take above or below
- Pressing [LEFT] or [RIGHT] selects the previous or next comp region
- Double-clicking a take lane selects it in its entirety as the current comp
- From the composite lane, dragging the top of any comping region up and down adjusts its gain
- From the composite lane, sliding the bottom of any comping region left and right adjusts its timing
- Sliding a boundary where two comping regions meet moves their fade point
- Sliding a take boundary in the take lanes area also moves the transition point between comp regions
- Dragging near a boundary in the composite lane allows shortening a comp region to remove audio (including breaths, etc.)
- Deleting a time selection within a comp similarly replaces the selection with silence
- [ALT]-dragging a take lane slides the time of that entire lane (and any comp regions pointing to it)
- [SHIFT]-[ALT]-dragging a take lane slides the time of that all take lanes (and all comp regions referencing them)
- Comping expression editing keeps track of its own snapping setting, defaulting off
- [SHIFT]-dragging temporarily inverts the snapping setting

Layered Comp Editing:
- With multiple comping clips selected, layered editing mode of the Detail Editor Panel allows comp editing of multiple clips at once
- In the Comping expression view, the target layer shows all of its take lanes, and additional clips show only their composite lanes
- All comp editing gestures work as they do in regular (single) comp editing mode
- Using any of the comp editing gestures while holding [CTL] ([CMD] on Mac) applies that edit to only the single comp you are interacting with

Fold to Takes for Comping Any Source:
- Wrap any audio clip into takes by right-clicking on it and choosing Fold to Takes
- Select either how many takes to create, or the length for each take
- Drag any audio file from the Browser Panel to the take lane area to add a new take lane
- Right-click on any take lane header for Fold to Takes of that individual lane (in case a file is longer than the current comp, etc.)
