Coming in early January, 2017, version 1.1 will feature a simple user interface as an alternative for those who simply want to load presets without all the visual clutter of the full control panel.

Other improvements include:

  • key release sample layers now correctly follow mixer pan controls.
  • a handful of sustain samples have been tidied up - faint clicks removed.
  • smoother dynamics for the sustain layers for a more gradual increase in "bite" as velocity increases.
  • pedal noise layers now follow recent key velocity.

This last one's a bit subtle, but helps mimic the natural effect that dynamic playing has on pedal noises during an acoustic piano performance. Basically, when you pound the keys, you tend to stomp that sustain pedal. Likewise, quiet playing usually results in more gentle pedal action. While the pedal noise control on the GUI still calls the shots, quiet playing will result in an additional trim amount so your delicate playing will result in quieter pedal up/down sounds.
