Rig Manager revision 1.5.40 is required!
Rigs, Performances, Presets, and Snapshots created under this operating system are only downward compatible with operating system 3.3.0 Build 11973, but not with elder operating systems!
This operating system introduces the following new features and fixes:
added: Morphing (demonstration Rigs enclosed in this upgrade package and available as Morphing Demo Rig Pack)
added: multiple delay effects supported in one Rig

added: Strobe Tuner with “cent” display replacing Bubble Level Tuner
added: new subpage “Button Assignments” on page “Remote Settings” in System Menu allows to assign alternative functions to Remote’s TAP, TUNER, and LOOPER buttons
added: function Looper Button 1 (Record/Playback/Overdub) and 2 (Stop) as well as Morph Button can be assigned to external switches and Remote’s TAP, TUNER, LOOPER
added: Morph Pedal and pedal nodes “MorphPedal to Wah” and “MorphPedal to Pitch” combined with other pedal node selections on new System menu page “Pedal Links”
