December 9st 2011 - Version V1.0.11 released
Channel Reset Button added: when clicked, all channels will go to 0.
In the PresetSlider contextmenu I changed 'Save Channels to Preset' to 'Create Preset from Channels' to state more clearly what it does.
In the PresetSlider contextmenu I added an item 'Preset to Channels'. This brings the faders of the channel layer up to show the actual preset and sets the preset fader to 0. This way you can edit the setting. After editing you could use 'Create Preset From Channels' to save the preset again.
When a slider is scrolled, the MIDI gets updated. This should also resolve a bug with scrolling one slider and clicking the next.
Known issues:
- Midi NRPN mode does not synchronize the midi remote fader when the coupled onscreen fader is moved.


December 7st 2011 - Version V1.0.10 released
Enttec Dmx Usb Pro supported! (Only normal DMX output mode, no input, no RDM).
Known issues:
- Midi NRPN mode does not synchronize the midi remote fader when the coupled onscreen fader is moved.


December 2st 2011 - Version V1.0.9 released
Bug with bump buttons above 100% resolved, now really;)
Problem resolved where after 'Save channels to preset' the preset was already active, although the presetslider was down.
Known issues:
- Midi NRPN mode does not synchronize the midi remote fader when the coupled onscreen fader is moved.


December 1st 2011 - Version V1.0.6 released
Bug with bump buttons above 100% resolved

November 22th 2011 - Version V1.0.4 released

Combined 32-bit/64-bit support - now Macs from before 2008 (but running Snow Leopard) can use it.

Midi now works both ways.
When you adjust a fader on screen, the corresponding midi controller will be outputted to all midi ports.

The first time the program was started, it didn't remember it's settings. Resolved.
