Zebra 2.8 beta - changelog (revision 6849)

Please backup your presets before installing.
We unified the preset organization between Mac and Win.
On Mac, there were separate local and user folders for OSC and MSEG module presets and Microtuning files.
The user location won't be used anymore. During installation, any presets from this location will be moved to a 'user' folder in the local location.


* New Preset-Browser (minus tagging)
* New DotEight and DarkEight skins
* New Wavefolder module
* New NuRev reverb module
* Fullsize editor for OSC, MSEG and MMAP modules
* FMO module has waveform previews in new skins
* Modulation table for MSEG and MMAP modules
* More parameters exposed to host automation
* XY controls now have fine control via Shift-click
* New VST3 implementation
* GUI performance improvements on Windows
* Pitchbend range now +/-48
* Plugin format & OS info next to revision number
* "On open expand to" has new "none" option
* Windows installer now certified
* Init preset can be loaded from main display


* MacOS High Sierra - folders and presets unsorted if using APFS
* Mac only - possible crash in Cubase when selecting presets
* Win only - VST3 wasn’t remembering preset name in main display
* Playing very high notes could lead to a crash
* Formant filter caused volume spikes when used at 96kHz sample rate

Known Issues:

Thanks Jaap. Odd though - do you know the story of why they have a new preset browser but no tagging?
