FM sound improvement

some general improvements

some bug fixes

The base structure of the device is based on windowing. Windowing means that the delayed signal is broken down into grains that are overlapped and crossfaded to maintain continuous transitions. This technique allows dynamic modulations of the delay time without affecting the pitch and effects such as real-time pitch shifting, reverse and grain delay. The extensive LFO section gives the possibility to heavily modulate the delay time and create complex sonic results. Dynamic stereo routing and distortion inside the feedback chain coupled with a shelving filter and a morph filter allows you to further drastically shape the sound.
