  • Modified 'Export To MIDI' to use a buffer of the last session play to account for real-time factors
  • Time signature changes are now supported in hosts that do not send proper barStartPos information (Cakewalk VST wrapper, FL Studio and others)

  • Foot hihat now automatically plays on quarters when ride is active
