    • importing .wav files using uncommon format headers would crash the app or create static
    • “link transport” and “time-stretch” buttons would not toggle properly
    • restoring an ApeMatrix session with RE-1 inside would crash the plugin
    •  wireless headphones would result in low quality mono audio
    • changing the host tempo would cause time-streching to be calculated based on the previous, not the updated tempo
    • loading the app in Garagageband would cause a crash (only relates to IAA, not AUv3)
    • time-stretching would only be applied to samples loaded from audio files but not live recordings
    • the right channel would behave differnetly from the left when applyin feedback in overdub mode
