- Display of DCP preset names in the Cymbal Editor.

- Expanded preset auditioning and editing features in the Set Editor.
- "Sticky Focus" in DSP controls makes it easier to make adjustments with one hand while hitting cymbals with the other.
- Routing switch for the DCP's Aux input so you can send click tracks etc. to the headphone output only.
- Numerous performance improvements and bug fixes.

When your DCP is connected to your computer via USB, with the DCP Access Tool you can check your Cymbal Processor's software and hardware version numbers, check the Gen16 servers for available upgrades, upgrade your Cymbal Processor's firmware, and upload new cymbal and reverb DSP presets to it.

The Access Tool application can also display a variety of information about your Cymbal Processor such as its firmware and hardware versions, which may be important if you ever need to contact Gen16 Tech Support.

The Access Tool will automatically check for DCP firmware updates on launch if a DCP is connected and an internet connection is available. You can also check manually at any time by selecting "Check for Updates" in the Access Tool's "Help" menu. If updates are available, the Access Tool will guide you through the download and installation process.
