  1. Nice changes, but not a lot for a full version. How about another synth engine at some point, like a 6-8 operator FM engine, or a physically modeling engine.

    1. It’s amazing to me that multicore support isn’t standard for all software. I mean.. can you even purchase a single core device anymore?
