Release 1.2.0 Beta 1

  • NEW Sidechain and multi-channel (16in/16out) support.
  • Improvements:
    • Plugin/Server handshake: True passive mode, all connections will be opened from the plugin to the server, which will allow a server to be behind a gateway and will simplify the network setup.

    • Store/Load FX chains or instruments as presets.
    • Set an FX preset as default to be auto-loaded with a new AG plugin instance.
