Version 8.4.1 is out for both Windows and Mac.  The Tuner has been updated for hotkeys and the transcriber and setlists have been fixed (not to mention the Resources Portal not working).  I've also included a new setlist of guitar show backing tracks! 

It's a full install - that means, before installing, export your presets that you want to save to the desktop (you can recover them from the folder Guitar SightReader Toolbox Exports.

I'm hoping to add an installer app soon, so it'll make updates more pleasant!
