    • Sequence editor now has an event property panel for quickly changing the (selected) event values in an alternative way. With optimized undo/redo support so to avoid redundant undo/redo steps!
    • New “Transpose -1”, “Transpose +1”, “Transpose -12”, “Transpose +12” sequence shortcut functions.
    • Envelope editor now has an envelope point property panel, similar to the event property panel in the sequence editor.
    • Audio-, sequence- and automation editors now much more clearly indicate the active/inactive region.

      • MuDrum sampler plug-in slots now also have an explicit On/Off button.
