That's what I thought too!
Unless they're planning to bang out a 5.1 before February...
(Fine by me.)

new feature include, but are not limited to.

Now, clips will start 3/8 of the way instead of half.
"poof" will include a special "upgrade to version 6" popup
The default color for icons will be green again


Ok.......just kidding around........except the green icon would be great!

Hi folks,

honestly there will be "no" other features as the support for Intel-Mac and bugfixes. Before Steve Jobs surprised (at least) many people some days ago we had a potential bugfix in preparing, like 5.0.4.

But with Intel-Mac support we think a 5.x version would be fit better and is also easier to comunicate and to handle.
And now comes the funny part... but we would simply avoid to name it 5.1 because the potentially misleading surround analogy.
So after some heavenly discussion... 5.2 was born. :)

regards,
/Alex

I love how you ables are so audio nerdy as to avoid 5.1. Kind of like a footballer not wanting to be No.13 in the squad. :D

make two copies of each track
one to send to it's own speaker
the other to send to another track that sums up all the other channels, EQs out the highs, boost the lows and goes to your sub.

but you could have multiple sub tracks

Looks like we've all upgraded to Live version infinity.infinity
