What's new in v1.6HEY EVERYONE! Thanks for being super awesome!
+ Do you have to pound your midi keyboard to get a note to play loudly? Do you barely press a key and have it play too loud? Well now you can adjust S1's sensitivity to MIDI Velocity in the Settings pop-over. Enable “Velocity-sensitive MIDI” and adjust the sensitivity knob to make your performance as expressive as possible for your keyboard. Also great with ROLI keyboards.
+ Fixed a bug that broke reordering your presets
+ Fixed a bug that hid the text of the name when saving presets.
+ Playing the Arp in down mode now plays keys in the order pressed (thanks to Francis Preve for this idea)
+ We are all volunteer musicians & coders. Thanks for your help!
+ Special thanks to volunteer coder Marcus Hobbs who added most of these features!
