& collectible user guide printed on premium card stock

********NEW ***** VERSION 2.0 updates & new features************
* added AUDIO INPUT passthru in ALL MODEs

* tweaked FILTER knobs & resonance. improved response. reduced noise when FILTER KILL engaged.

* changed GRAINSIZE & STRETCH response. wider and stretchier.

* attack & release envelopes (envelope times controlled by GRAIN (atk) & STRETCH (rel) KNOBs when GRAIN MODE is OFF.)

* added nu's scratch point looping when latched & acquainted nu w/ A/R envelopes

* added PUMP MODE - attack envelope continuously retriggers itself each period.
(hold/release REVERSE + RECORD -like nu's and cassette tape mode- to toggle on and off)
*if attack time = 0 and release time > 0 then release envelope will retrigger itself each period.

* added FREEZE Window Size Knob - (STRETCH KNOB when FREEZE MODE is ON)

* to accommodate their new multi functions, GRAIN & STRETCH Knobs operate in a CATCHUP fashion.

* added FILTER DROP in PLAYBACK Mode (RECORD + REVERSE) & FILTER DROP is now
LATCHABLE in either MODEs like the rest

* added PATTERN RECORDER - records your button presses and plays/loops it back (up to 128 note ons&offs)
*FREEZE is disabled while using PATTERN RECORDER
// Tap RECORD once to enable REC then play your pattern on the BUTTONS (record starts on first button press)
(without pressing any BUTTONs, hit RECORD again to disable PATTERN RECORDER)
// Tap RECORD again (or if you reach max. 128 note) to store and start pattern playback
// Tap RECORD to retrigger playback from start - Hold RECORD to stop playback
// Hold RECORD for 1 sec to CLEAR pattern and disable PATTERN RECORDER

* lowered max sample rate to 10025 Hz (10.025 kHz) to free up cpu cycles for new features (more lofi! more sample time!)
