.
Fixed incorrect interpretation of parameter values that are typed in the host (e
.g. for automation points) in the VST 2 and VST 3 plug-ins.

incorrect size upon loading a saved session in e.g. Ableton Live.

Audio Unit hosts and Pro Tools (e.g. for automation purposes).
In addition to the RTAS format, the plug-in is now also available in the AudioSu
