Good app - Makes all the Craft’s parameters accessible in real time

Good app. I do have one problem with it, the 3 buttons (Keyboard, Touch pads and Settings) in the lower right corner are grayed out. Everything else works great

It did not update the plugin

I am using Ableton Live 10 on High Sierra. Ran the update, the plugin still shows v 1.3. It no longer allows me to update the plugin in the App Store, so it did something. However, even after restarting my computer, rescanning my plugins, etc., it still shows V1.3. (VST3)
