>   - a/b switch again: please add a 2-channel version. if you havn't

> not sure if my skille are sufficient)
>   - a switchbox4 would be great! :)  (so stepping on the footswitch

>   - for exampe: my current bandpractice-default is FS1 for mute (using
> the ToggleSwitch4) and FS2 for some gain-boost, Knob2 does the
> gainadjust. Knob 1 is not assigned. so theres "knob #1" standing on the
> display, which isnt too nice - in offlinemode. it could stay just empty,
> or be customizable (hehe), or just display the banks/pedalboards name.
>   - since the mod hangs some times, can we support you with some kind of
> crashdumps, tail'ed logfiles. if so: how?
>   - i can't install plugins from the plugin store right now, it says no
> authentication. i can reste the xruns, so i believe i have 0.11.3
> running. guess this is gonna solve itself at some point, right? ;)
> so long and thanx for your work again!
