– wrong sync choosing START or CONTINUE when clock is running already

– audio problems with multi-out plugins (e.g. Kontakt, Omnisphere, KORG M1, Spitfire, and others)
– fixed plugins state after restoring a backup
– glitch when disconnecting a layer after being kept alive by notes on
– removing a disconnected MIDI input, a new “(disconnected)” element appears as selected and the other one keeps being selected
