a little strange thing: mac osx have a BETTER version than pc ones, named 804. Anyway it is experimental, it is extremely fast. We'll release 804 for pc tomorrow. Betatesters reported a very fast loading on 804, ie 2 seconds for each instance even when all bands (7) are engaged.

This thing sounds great but I'm a little confused by GUI where the frequency settings have been changed and don't match the beta GUI nor the original hardware settings. The high band even has two duplicates (4k7 and 10k). What happened to 5k6 and 8k2? Are these intentional changes or is the GUI mislabeled?

I know the original has (different) duplicate frequencies... that isn't what has me confused. My question is more aimed at the missing ones I guess. It's not really a major deal, but it has me wondering if they are correctly labeled.

Sure I can take a screenshot, but it is the same GUI that was posted to Acustica's Facebook page recently. The earlier (purple) one has the frequencies labeled the same as the hardware. For example on the new GUI's low band, 22 has been changed to 28, 33 has been changed to 38, 47 is missing, etc...

I'll take a screenshot.

ah ok, i understand what you wanted to say with "duplicates" now.
i thought you see two times the same number on a frequency button ...

this is all correct and i think someone from acustica staff will explain tomorrow.
