  4. SynthMaster might crash when waveforms are selected from a waveform dropdown for a preset that's saved before version 2.7.
  5. Some factory presets have missing waveforms.
  6. When number of waveforms is greater then 65535, SynthMaster might crash when selecting a wave from whose index is higher than 65535.
  7. SynthMaster doesn't play some of the presets (saved before version 2.7) correctly.
  8. When SynthMaster is rendering offline, program change messages should be processed synchronously.

  16. Slope parameter changes in the reverse direction for the drive view control.
  17. Multisegment envelope generator doesn't sync correctly to tempo when envelope stage lengths are snapped to grid.
  18. ADSR envelope generator doesn't sync correctly to tempo when envelope stage lengths are snapped to grid.

  20. SynthMaster saves empty favourite presets file.
  21. When length of directory names of imported waveforms/wavetables exceed a certain limit, SynthMaster One might crash.
  22. On MacOS, sub folder names are not parsed correctly because of the directory separator differences between Windows and MacOS.
  23. Preset author name is incorrectly initialized as 'Demo User'.
  24. Using mod wheel with modulation target/source/type dropdowns might crash SynthMaster One.
  25. SynthMaster crashes when image files defined in skin definitions don't exist.
  26. Number of waveforms/wavetables is limited to 16384.
  27. When switching presets, SynthMaster might crash.

  33. GUIEditor saves rendered images twice in the skin definition file.
  34. Browser lists in default skins (Gray, Blue, Orange, Red) are not multi-select.
  35. GUIEditor generates separate images for each skin resolution, which results in increased setup file size.
  36. Satyatunes Blue skin looks blurry at resolutions greater than 100%.
  37. Expansions downloads fail when CDN https/http redirection is used.
  38. Phaser LFO volume is zero, resulting in no modulation for the Phaser effect.
  39. When listbox background style is not set, SynthMaster crashes.
  40. In chord mode, arpeggiator might not work correctly resulting in hanging notes or crashes.
  41. In chord mode, arpeggiator doesn't play the first note.
