Host modulation is steppy (Resolved)

I'm trying to modulate stuff in cubase such as the frequency cutoff of a synth, but it sounds steppy. I've tried the "MidiData" module, connected the value a control, sent the module to modulate the frequency cutoff, and it seems there's no way to modulate any parameter within the host without it be...

Hotkeys (not important enough IMO)

Dang, I just realized KarmaFX has no hotkeys (except for adjusting synth parameters) Is this because of the problem where hosts don't let synths have hotkeys without some certain feature turned on or something? I dunno what I'm saying. However, hotkeys for minimize/maximize all and show/hide modulat...

FR: Random sine LFO

What do I mean by random sine LFO? Inside the LFO module, there's Random1 which randomly goes up and down. However, a random LFO that is smooth instead of square-ish is really great for sound design.

I'm not sure why you want multiple outputs so the mixing is on the host side? It's not so important. I'd just use it to, for example, give snare a little more external reverb than the hat, and give the kick no external reverb. But I can of course use the internal KarmaFX reverb for that.

FR: Allow more modules of a type.

I strongly feel that 8 modules of one type just isn't enough and it should be extended to at least doubt that, to 16. After you have LFOs controlling delays and choruses, you use up most of your modulation availability. If you want multi-point envelopes and other modulation going on, you'll hit the ...

It would be great if there was a second legato mode where portamento would only occur when you hold two notes instead of sliding up and down with every single note.
