* MSynthesizer4NN templates - Being extremely versatile MSynthesizer4NN was also a little harder to use. Now it contains more than 20 predefined templates providing simple creation of drums, such as snare and bass drum. Not limiting its features, templates only configure the MSynthesizer4NN parameters, so you can further tweak it. This makes the MSynthesizer4NN the most advanced drum synthesizer in the world.
* Advanced song structures editor - while MIDI command method is still the most versatile, Song structures are now even more powerful and easy to edit.
* Full resizing using plugin editor border - our plugins still remain the only ones in the world providing true resizing using window border as you are used to with normal windows. Add the most advanced styling engine and you have the best GUI ever.
* Added MFlanger effect.
* Added harmonics and advanced band editors to MEqualizer.
* Drumset and rhythm undo for basic operations such as loading, merging, changing speed...

* Improved Windows 64-bit compatibility.
* Added drag & drop loop as MIDI from the loop selector in Rhythm editor.

* Graphical improvements, modified style for better visibility..
* Layers panel is now collapsed by default.
* Added edit button into the drum designer opening editor for particular drum.

* Improved help system.
* Zipper noise protection.
* Fix: Rhythm synchronization problems.
