Please note, the following issues are known and we are working hard on getting these resolved!

​​​​​​​

Additional Information

  • Trace panels ‘Low Pass Filter’ has been removed.

The reason the Low Pass filter was created was to counteract issues that occurred when using the High Pass filter.

Due to the recent work that has gone into tracing, the High Pass Filter should no longer create these issues and therefore the necessity for the Low Pass filter is no longer apparent.

Please note, we are reviewing feedback and comments that have come in regarding this change.
