  • Hold Notes – allows consecutive notes to be to be treated as a single held note, rather than repeat triggering of the note. This can be turned on or off on a layer by layer basis.
  • Paste Sample – Added the ability to paste sample data from the global PasteBoard into the Sampler so long as the sample length is less than 10 seconds,
  • MIDI Clock – An experimental MIDI clock feature has been added to synchronise with external MIDI devices.
