Beta 120.23 – note from the author:

i found 3 bugs in the tone-bend routine. and i have also change 2 of the functions in the program.

Before note-lock was affecting both S1 and S2 now you can set it to s1,s2 or both. I have also change bend-mode ramp-off to only turn off the source that is being bent. So if you bend only S1 then it is only S1 that is turn off after the bend is finish
