1. Improved CPU load
2. Added ATSC A/85 to lufs target platforms


1. UI changes and bug fixes

1. Signal flow changed – now the bass management is placed before the main track plugin. this is it’s the right location if you wish to insert a room correction plugin.
2. Signal flow changes – Cue send is now pre-input on/off button. So now you can send a signal from the input track to the Cue and not to the control room at the same time.
3. New feature added – in bass management, now you can control the level of the SUB signal path, ie the injected audio from channels LPF.
4. New feature added – Master clock and Sample rate indication added on the main UI.
5. New feature added – master clock disconnection handling, if your master clock got disconnected you will get a red indication, and the system will fall back to Sphere 16 as a momentary master clock fallback, connecting the master clock back will return the clock settings and will get back in sync.
6. Now you can rename the Volume recall buttons – Ref1, Ref2, Ref3.
7.  Main volume button value is now on the main UI with the option to text entry the value.
8. Fixed routing issue when the plugin is inserted into the main track slot in some scenarios and also if a plugin was inserted to the last channel in the track. 
9. Fixed a bug with loading a session – happened only when the trial was over.
10. Fixed a bug where audio didn’t start on a load in some cases till you changed a connection.

v1.1.0 update

1. We added a new feature where disconnected devices will be saved in the Sphere session/configuration. and when this device will show up again it will be automatically re-connected. if you will remove a disconnected device from Input/output while it’s still disconnected – this device will be then gone.
We have done this so that you can disconnect your computer and switch between different configurations without losing the device’s setup and connections.
