    traditionally sidechaining been added already and it's working nicely (can be routed from multi-out VSTi too)
    personally I miss the grouping (1.2) and the step-recording from it and its pianoroll is nowhere from FL, but it's definitely getting better and better which each release, Push also will be quite usable with new remote API functions
