    Ok, a new patched version will be available for download soon. It adds a bunch of fixes, most dealing with issues with wav export. Also, have added a new feature called “Channel Presets”. A channel preset lets you copy synthesizer settings from one channel to another. This lets you quickly stack synthesizers at different octaves to make some chorused lead and pad sounds.

    Here’s an example:

    List of fixes in Patch 1:
    - Fixed bug during export that would cause effects to get written to wrong channel
    - Added missing lowpass filter on exported wav
    - Added "Virtual Channel Preset" option
    - Fixed marker glitch when follow mode and loop lock active
    - Fixed bug where equalizer display only included values from one effect send
    - Corrected export bug where reverb settings were overwritten with defaults on export

    It’s been a bit, so thought I give some more info on the beta progress. Updates are moving along well and it’s very close to when the beta updates are added to the live version (optimistically within a week). The most recent patches include a lot of optimizations as well as a new tempo swing feature. The swing feature allows you to adjust the timing of note playback so your beats sounds more natural.
