Supports VST plugins with up to 8 inputs (only the 1st two channels are used.)
Rename MIDI Ports with custom names
Improved Scene Access
Improved MIDI Filters: 4 key ranges in midi filters to support dead zones, layers, chords, etc.
Improved per-Scene Control for better control of when plugins receive new configuration
MIDI Monitor for plugins

More MIDI automation options for scene changes
Up to 8 "Quick Access" scenes re-callable via MIDI automation for immediate access regardless of set order
