Lets put it this way, .

this is ''built-in LFOs/envelopes/sequencers" away from being the best modular platform out there.

In beta but showing lots of promise. I have given a 10 rating because even at this stage it is stable on my aging Mac system and already fulfills my main requirement to load audio units in a VST only host.

Has Potential. At the moment It does not recognize several plugins. There is also no way to load banks or preset .just the default bnks are available. No running engine so that Instruments that depend on that do not workd-like Rps or Blue arp or PM2. lso crashes from time to time. Still I like it and think it will provide a good daw in the future.

You should try the most recent version which is much better than what you describe above.

Yesterday the hold function of the MIDI keyboard worked like it should, today its just not holding the note.

this is one very important functionality of this software for me.

How does one go about fixing that?

Weird it'd just stop working. Bugs can be reported @ https://github.com/kushview/element/issues if I don't get to it first.
