- Are the ranges (±3 dB to ±60+ dB and horizontal zoom from 1x to 10x) reasonable? Do we need larger ranges? Narrower ranges?
- Are the Hor. Zoom and Hor. Position necessary as knobs, or do the mouse wheel zoom and right-click drag scroll make them superfluous?
- Do I need to provide alternatives keys to the mouse wheel zoom and the right-click drag-scroll? (as in, if your computer can't do those things well)
- Should there be a way to scroll vertically as well? Most EQs just allow you to set the range, but I was wondering if being able to scroll up and down would be a welcome option. If yes, should the right-click drag scroll in 2D?
- Should there be a way other than a knob to scroll vertically, like the Shift+Wheel in Photosounder? Or even a way to zoom in 2D at the same time like Ctrl+Wheel in Photosounder?
- Should I provide a way to increase the analyser's resolution (as you can do in Spiral) or is it precise enough as it is even when you zoom?
- Do you care about the gamma option? (basically it sort of increases the contrast, cranking it up can allow you to better see the changes at the expense of making a lot of the spectrum turn black, which can also be a good thing) Also backported from Spiral, I'm not sure it's as useful here but I thought some of you might like the choice.
- The interface size is now 1220x666 (with a visualisation size of 974x602, a golden rectangle), which is meant to suit neatly into the common lowest screen resolution which should be 1280x800. How does that size work for you? The interface is now procedurally generated at startup instead of being a PNG made in Photoshop, so making it a different resolution shouldn't be too hard.
- Oh yeah I've also changed the way the Delay knob works. Until now the actual delay rose as the resolution setting rose, which kept CPU usage about constant (which turns out no one really cared about) but gave you ludicrous delays by default. Now it's changed so the Delay gives you a delay independent of the resolution. So there's that and how I increased the possible max resolution to 16x (or ~16,000 FFT bins at 44.1 kHz), I figured since we have zoom now, then why not... Yay? Nay? More resolution?
- Is the dB/frequency grid overlay over the visualisation too faint? Too bright? I honestly can't decide which.
- Anything else? Any bugs to report? With all the tons of internal changes done I've probably introduced some.

By the way if you're thinking of holding off buying it, don't hold off, two weeks after v1.1 is officially released I'll raise the price from the insane $19 to the much saner price of $29, and even if you buy it now (or if you've bought it a long time ago) you'll still get the update for free, when you buy it doesn't make a difference.
