Version I am using
Upgrading to
Notable new features
Notable bugs fixed (version fix was applied)
Is the new version compatible with old songs?
3
4.7.3
(or previous)
4.9.6-R00 retrigs as fast as possible (4.7.5)Yes! All your old songs will play normally
4
-Analog sync (4.8.0)-Panning using B+left could mute (4.8.1)
5
recommended
-Wave channel timing adjusted for kits (4.8.2, 4.8.4)
6
stable version
-Analog out mode (4.8.6)
7
-Reduced hum in power save mode (4.8.8)-K command did not reset left kit channel (4.8.9)
8
-H command in phrases (4.9.1)
-Wave selections made backwards did not move up/down (4.9.4)
9
-Instrument switch to ignore transpose (4.9.5)-Transpose switch was sometimes ignored (4.9.6)
10
-PU2 transpose did not work (4.9.6)
11
-Notes without instrument number (I--) did not reset effects (4.9.6)
12
4.7.3 - 4.9.65.0.3-P command allows pitch bending arps (4.9.7)
-P command followed by L command did not work (4.9.9)
Probably - P command changes no longer allow R commands to retrigger instruments like kicks where a P command is used on a table. If you never used this, your songs will play normally.
13
-F command controls pulse finetune (5.0.0)
14
recommended
-W command controls wave synth speed/length (5.0.0)
15
stable version
-CPU optimizations for P and V commands (5.0.0)
-P command followed by L command did not work again (5.0.2)
16
-Triangle Vibrato was glitchy in 5.0.0-5.0.2 (5.0.3)
17
5.1.0 - 5.7.85.7.8-All features as described below (through 5.7.8)-All bugs as described below (through 5.7.8)Yes! All your old songs will play normally.
Please upgrade. If you're using a version from 5.1.0 to 5.7.7 you will gain features and a lot of bugs will be fixed.

20
stable version
21
4.7.3 - 5.7.8+6.8.2-Linear pitch (5.1.0)If upgrading from v5 to v6, several parameters will need to be changed - namely kicks and V commands, which are changed in v6 to be closer to v4No. P bends and L bends do not function the same way (P/L commands have to be tweaked, and P commands in wave channel do not have the same pitch wrapping effect), kicks will need to be set to DRUM pitch mode,
kit stepback interferes with F80-FFF offset commands in kits
(it is now recommended to use shorter samples in kits),
Z command functionality was altered, and pulse finetune needs adjustment.

Upgrading old songs is not necessarily recommended - it can be done, although it will be tedious.
New features will most likely be best appreciated when starting new songs from scratch.
22

23
