  • Looped samples;
  • 3 dynamic layers;
  • 3-band EQ to adjust the sound;
  • NEW – IR Reverb knob;
  • Key-off switch to enable/disable the key-off noise;
  • NEW – Fixed the bad flanger effect when pressing the sustain pedal;
  • NEW – Totally redesigned the script that controls the sustain pedal using an IR;
  • NEW – Harmonics / Resonance effects with another particular IR;
  • NEW – Some notes have been retuned and adjusted on levels and EQ dynamics;
