EZkeys - 1.2.4
Updates and fixes in 1.2.4

- Support for String Machine - many internal improvements.
- EZkeys projects can now be saved and loaded from the menu in the plug-in.
- The Chord Selector now has Left and Right buttons for moving the Chord Selector to the previous/next chord. Left and right arrow keys can be used in some hosts.
- The Chord Selector now has a Clean button, a toggle to make the MIDI in that chord follow the scale.
- Use Browser MIDI, Paste Chords and Paste MIDI now make the MIDI notes follow scale, if the menu option "Keep MIDI in Chord Scale" is on (which is the default).
- The Loop button is MIDI-learnable.
- Support for up and down arrow keys in the Browser.

- Standalone sample rate is no longer fixed at 44.1k for ASIO - now always uses the default sample rate of the ASIO device.
- The standalone can now handle an unlimited number of outputs on the sound card - any two can be selected.

- "Add Chord" did not snap, which could lead to problems. For example, when exporting MIDI, blocks could be omitted.
- Importing MIDI containing bar lengths 0 lead to a crash.
- Export WAV/MIDI menu entries are now disabled if the song track is empty.
- The red translucent block that marks the current recording sometimes became too long when a loop endpoint was reached, and it no longer overlaps itself in a loop.
- In the Browser, some headers had a play button.
- Higher velocities could not be previewed on black keys by clicking on them.
- When locating the sounds (if the sound path was not correctly set), it was possible to select an 'MEZK_*' folder as the sound path, after which authorization would not work. Also, the correct path (the parent of the MEZK folder) was in some cases not possible to select.
- Several functions are now disabled during recording, for example Undo/Redo, Use Browser MIDI, moving the playhead, splitting blocks and other operations that modify the contents of the song track.
- With the Chord Notation tool, left click inserted chord where mouse was and not where the snapped cursor was.
- When clicking with the Chord Notation tool on a chord to edit, it snapped to the left chord instead of the cursor-marked chord to the right.
- If a chord was added at the end of block with the Chord Notation tool, EZkeys crashed.
