Full support for note-offs and note duration
Randomizer slider, allowing controlled & creative randomization of almost every aspect of GURU
Sample reverse in the pad editor, also automatable via the graphs
Completely overhauled slicing algorithm with sensitivity control and much improved slice results, and support for loops with up to 128 slices
Per-pattern resolution/multiplier controls, so you can now set each pattern to play triplets, 8th and 32nd-notes, etc.
