• Some of the arpeggiator presets in Collective and Subtractive (e.g. Mouse Chords JH and SyncMarch JH) don't get along well with chord clips; the effect is most obvious with a bassline setting. The effect is that of a missing note-off at the end of the clip, so one big chord stacks up after one or two clip crossings; returning to the start of a marked loop does a notes-off. Reducing the gate value doesn't help.

• If I add a VST to a scanned VST folder and accept [Scan now] on the automatic scan popup that results, the VST will often get rejected and wind up listed in red at the bottom of the plugins window. Remove the red entry from the list and manually rescan, and the VST will be accepted. Possibly a timeout/CPU issue as it happens least often with native plugins versus bridged.

• The Keyboard Shortcuts UI won't allow setting a Quit key.

• Grouping clips and then ungrouping them leaves the individual clips as groups of one.

• Stretching audio clips while looping over them will max out my 2 CPUs and require killing W10 manually. Editing a MIDI clip while looping over Elastiqued audio clips is similarly afflicted; using rendered versions of the same clips, not so much.

One more bug: If you're in a key other than C, the pattern generator's bass-line doesn't work properly.


Create new project called Scratch.
Open Scratch Edit 1.
Add 1-bar chord clip (Follow Global Track)
Add 1-bar MIDI clip under it.
Add 8 1/2beat [8th] notes: C5 D5 E5 F5 G5 A5 B5 C6.
Select all 8 notes, quantize start times to 1/2-beat just in case, add a 4-beat bass preset called Ascending4.
Add 1-bar MIDI clip next to 1st, extend chord clip over it, set 2nd clip to Pattern Generator/Bassline/Preset: Ascending4. Adjust Octave to 6 to bring it next to its source: all notes correct.
Change key to C minor, reset the pattern so the notes get re-created: C5 D5 D#5 F5 G#5 A#5 C6. Fine...
Change key to A minor, reset the pattern so the notes get re-created: A5 A5 B5 C6 D6 E6 F6 A6. Er, what? Some sort of off-by-one error in the middle?
Change key to A major, reset the pattern so the notes get re-created: A5 B5 C6 D6 E6 F6 G6 A6. Now the notes between A5 and A6 are right, but the sharps are missing from C/F/G.
