* Added the option to load and save user presets for effects.
* Added an option to the settings to enable velocity for the virtual keyboard depending on the vertical touch position
* On the virtual keyboard screen, short tap on Sustain now toggles the sustain on/off. Long-tap will keep sustain for the duration of the tap.
* The soundfont dialog now scrolls to the current soundfont/bank/preset
* When several sound fonts were present, the default sound font was not always set to GeneralUser.sf2, which could lead to problems when importing MIDI files.
* The pop-up menu is now blocked when setting the time stretch point visually

* Automation wasn’t correct when playing loops. Solved.
* Swiping the area above the mixer now scrolls through the mixer channels

* When a MIDI program change is encountered and the soundfont does not contain the preset number, the program change is now ignored. Previously, no sound would be produced.
* If a preset is selected in the instrument selection dialog, it will remove any program change from the first second of the MIDI track, to make sure the selected instrument will not be overruled.
* Solved a MIDI loop issue
* Zooming in Edit mode could start editing. Solved.
* Changed several effect parameters that control frequency to behave exponential (BandPass, LowPass, etc.)

* Solved a crash with arming a track in mixer view
* Changing the note length of MIDI events by using the white markers was not always quantised. Solved.
