Specifically, I'm clicking "configure" in the little box, then clicking on the control in ANA 2, but it never shows up as an automatable control. Help?
Can you not use LFO depth instead? I would imagine you can't automate level as it's technically a modulation matrix amount rather than a synth parameter.

And if I modified an existing sound. Does the original preset get changed as well etc ?

How would I best go about this, I did not find the manual very clear on saving your own or modified sounds ?

Thanks for your input.
If you modify a factory preset - you will overwrite it yes

its best you keep your presets organised in a USER subfolder of your choosing
If you use the Menu in ANA 2 you can navigate to the user presets folder

So was it released then?

Good question.
How will I know... do they add a notice to my account that an update is available?
few issues cropped up with the fixes in the latest builds which are being addressed - i'll drop a message here as soon as the demo is ready

Excellent news. While I'm downloading, though... is it really necessary to have a 784 MB file for an update?

I've not seen a demo version (or I missed it)?

A couple of things about the latest release. Entering text for the macro controls seems to have changed. You can no longer use '&' and now you can use lower and upper case, whereas prior it seemed to convert everything to uppercase. Is this correct? I do use '&' quite a lot.

Cheers

EDIT: It seems that the above only happens in the larger sizes of the GUI i.e. 125% & 150%

Yeah it was an issue with the font that was causing the garbled text issue...I will add & to the new font.

Ah ok, thanks Phil.

Should lowercase be available at all GUI sizes also?

I think lowercase is only on the Retina vesion as its using a different font

Not at 100%. It forces everything into uppercase - 64-bit Win 10 Bitwig 2.2.2

100% non retina uses a pixel font... i think anything bigger switches to the full font.
