- 8 Meta patches which can be stored

Note: There are still some issues with this beta; CPU is high and saving patches externally doesn’t really work.
You can download the beta of HeavenBound here or listen to a demo mp3 to hear what it sounds like.
Because HeavenBound is quite heavy on the CPU there’s also a light version available here.
