SFZ Designer Updated to 0.3

SFZ Designer has been updated to 0.3 and is now available here. This updated fixes long-existing bugs including: the <global> tag not being included in the exported file, and the sustain envelope defaulting to 0 -- both are now fixed. These bugs are related to the 'no sound' bug that some users have reported. Since the sustain previously defaulted to 0, no sound is played unless the value is overwritten. This updated should fix that problem.

Revisiting Old Plug-ins

I still use some of my early plug-ins from time to time, even if only to see how much has changed in my technique. I had taken these down some time ago because most of them have been replaced by new products, and the really old ones either look funny or work funny.
