Update 10.60

-Audio Tracks. By simple operations, Fuzion can now record a sample, and automatically place it as and audio track, on sequencer track 9 to 16 (8 tracks in total). When stopping and starting the sequencer, audio tracks are continued.

-Sample tempo and quantized start (Remix). All samples now has a tempo assigned to them. This is used by the audio tracks, and by the new Quantized Start function. A sample tempo can be manually applied on the Sample Rec page. If a sample has no tempo assigned to it, its tempo will be set to 120 BPM. If you plan to use an imported sample as an audio track, the tempo for it must be adjusted. The Quantized Start function makes the sample start parameter jump to rhythmical divisions of the sample. This is very useful for remixing an audio track.

-Synth Triggers. On the Preset Select page, the "Trig" button has now been renamed to "Triggers". When this is activated, 8 of the pushbuttons can now be assigned to trigger the internal synths or external MIDI devices.

Sample source select. It is now possible to select whether you would like to sample record the audio inputs or any of the audio outputs.

-Sequencer record 2 bar count-in. If the Rec button is pushed, when the sequencer is stopped, to activate realtime recording, and the Play button is pushed after this, the sequencer metronome will now do a 2 bar count-in, before recording starts.

-Sequencer tracks synth direct select. When a sequencer track is set to "Int" (internal), it is now possible to select channel 1 to 16, and synth 1 to 8 (direct). When using synth 1 to 8 direct, you do not have to set up any MIDI channels or key ranges for the synths. When a sequencer track is set to "Ext" (external), the MIDI channel is still shown as the channel number and the output number.

-Parameter select. To make it easier to figure out what parameters you will be editing with the 8 edit knobs, on pages that has more than 8 parameters, the "Lowr" button is now always switched off, when switching to another page, so you will know, that you will always be editing the upper 8 parameters, right after this. The parameter names of the parameters selected for editing, are now also inverted, to make it easier to see.

-Sample Delete optimized. Sample delete has been optimized, so it is a little bit faster. If you delete the last sample in a sample bank, it is now very much faster.

-Sequencer Tempo is now shown on the Preset Select screen.

Update 9.95

-Activates the Poly system. On the Osc page of synth 2 to 8, two new parameters has been added: Poly and GetSnd. When Poly is turned on, the synth poly chains to the synth one number below it. It is possible to polychain more than 2 synths, simply by turning poly on for the next synths in the row. All 8 synths can be poly chained, for 8 notes of polyphony. If the GetSnd parameter is turned on, the poly chained synth will play back with the same sound as the synth it is chained to. If GetSnd is off, it will play back with its own sound, making it possible to play polyphonic with different sounds.

-Activates Effects Processor 2. On the EFX select page, it is now possible to select if you would like to edit effect 1 or 2. It is also possible to set up the two processors in parallel or in serial, with EFX2 going into EFX1. Fusion of the 2 processors is also possible. When Fusion is on, both processors are using the same memory space, which can create some really odd effects.

-Activates panning. On the Osc Mod page of each synth, Pan Mod has now been added. When source is "Man" (manual), the mod amount parameter acts as a normal pan control. When source is any of Fuzion's modulation sources, pan will be modulated.
