  1. feature-wise it is a big improvement (I’ve used all the new things you’ve mentioned straight away, and the result is tunes that sound much more like something you could make using reason, cubase, logic etc).but unfortunately it’s still quite crash-prone….and I am still looking for any information about WHY certain arrangements/samples cause crashes, and others do not. INtua – please provide some bug information so that we can work around the problems until you fix them in a future release!
