What's new in v1.1

- Universal: added iPhone support
- UI: Added "What's new" dialogue
- UI: Added Sample export dialoge with options for applying a crossfade at the loop point and adjusting sample volume before writing it to disk
- UI: added info mode - when enabled, tapping any control will bring up a description of it's function as well as suggestions on how to use it
- UI: added support for drag n drop import/export of samples (works in Standalone and AU)
- Optimizations: improved drawing performance
- Optimizations: decreased install size
- Looping: When overdub is engaded, feedback only affects output from the second and third playback heads (this change was made to avoiding high pitched artifacts caused by modulating a delay time of 0hz)
- Fixed an issue where importing .wav files using uncommon format headers would crash the app or create static
- Fixed an issue where "link transport" and "time-stretch" buttons would not toggle properly
- Fixed an issue where restoring an ApeMatrix session with RE-1 inside would crash the plugin
- Fixed an issue where using wireless headphones would result in low quality mono audio
- Fixed an issue where changing the host tempo would cause time-streching to be calculated based on the previous, not the updated tempo
- Fixed an issue where loading the app in Garagageband would cause a crash (only relates to IAA, not AUv3)
- Fixed an issue where time-stretching would only be applied to samples loaded from audio files but not live recordings
- Fixed an issue where the right channel would behave differnetly from the left when applyin feedback in overdub mode
