Thinking of renting to own and cancelling if there's ever a decent sale depending on when.
Pausing or cancelling at any time seems like a good deal for now.
I would not pay the asking price outright for it.
Can you save seq presets by themselves? Not seeing a way so far.

We're proud to announce today we officially updated Zone to v1.1
The update includes over 100 new presets and over 50 new functionality upgrades, most of which were directly attributed to early user feedback - namely new arpeggio and lane scale presets, global step selectors, distortion and new delay insert FX, linkable oscillators, data shift function, oscillator tuning snap to grid, waveform text displays, revamped macros, extra global sequence presets, lane mute/lock and much more. You can grab the download for no extra cost to existing v1.0 users here. There is no need to uninstall your existing version, as v1.1 is designed to install over v1.0. Existing users can simply follow and install from the 'Trial' link.

The feature updates are listed in full below. You can also check out this video for a broader overview

PRESET SECTION:

112 additional new multi-genre presets. Total number of presets is 512.

‘Reset’ lock to guide against accidental patch reset

Support for multiple user banks/ability to create new preset folders within Zone GUI

Ability to copy/paste presets from one user bank to another

Additional preset categories - Tops and Stabs

New Insert FX type - ‘Distortion’ - providing 7 distortion tones, EXPONENTIAL, SOFT CLIP, HARD CLIP, TRIANGLE CLIP, TRIANGLE FOLD, SINGLE FOLD, MULTI FOLD

Insert FX are now bypass-able by right clicking the FX tab number.

SEQUENCER GRID SECTION:

Dedicated lane mute icons in sequencer lanes.

Dedicated lane lock to ensure data is not accidentally erased.

Clicking on sequencer lane data values to enter numeric text input.

When copying and pasting lane data, lane speed copies.

What OS/platform/ DAW are you on and specifically which patches / actions are causing your CPU to go up? Most of the presets have a tonne going on under the hood but there's nothing in the update that should cause an additional load.

Wow, I love this plugin. :love: It has become my main workhorse in less than 2 hours.
in some Youtube videos I can see user waveforms of analog synthesizers, where can I download them? Any Idea?

And it EATS cpu power! :borg:
