2.1.1 has introduced a very troubling issue for me. The coloured modulator circles catch and insert themselves upon slots which are passed over by the cursor before the mouse button is released. It’s essentially brushing modulators across the slots.
Check out the modulator slot issue here
On a seemingly related note, the modulation amount slider is bugged too. It disappears the instant you release the mouse button after having utilised it, and it will persist on screen if you summon it and subsequently click anywhere else on the interface other than the modulation slot it relates to.

I also have a feeling that the frame rate of the coloured modulator circles when you drag them about has worsened, but I could be wrong about that.
On less concerning note, I had the sense that your 20 min demo period was not actually running for the full 20 mins. I confirmed it today with a timer. 9 min and 30s remained on the clock when the noise and detune kicked in.
I also tested your advice with regard to the filter cutoff raising way up past 20KHz and beyond when modulated with an envelope. My tests show that the cutoff is both visually and audibly raised only a marginal amount. I honestly think there is something wrong with your modulation, which is why I can also only get an envelope to raise the pitch 9 semitones.
I apogolise, I have not yet set up my mac to be able to capture audio and screen together, but I’ve used an EQ display and tuner to demonstrate the following:
Filter only being raised marginally by env
Watch the EQ display. With filter off there’s a huge jump in amplitude of frequencies around 20KHz. When the filter is switched back on and an envelope is applied to the cutoff with max amount, it registers only a small bump to high frequency amplitude compared with no modulation.
Watch the env raise pitch +9 semitones
Look at the tuner display here. Playing a C with env applied to coarse pitch raises the pitch to an A. I can’t see how I’m making a mistake here. The modulation amount is as high as I can go and the env sustain is at maximum too.
Finally, regarding your comment about bypassing modulators, I think that your recommendation to set modulation amount to zero is nothing more than a workaround - and an inconvenient one at that. This method has its shortcomings. It demands that you summon the amount slider and then reset the value manually 0 - and you’re further inconvenienced by the fact that this slider is one of the few interface elements which cannot be reset to 0 with a double-click, or other shortcut.
A more convenient workaround, in some cases, is to drag the modulator out of the slot momentarily. This provides instant bypass, but it prevents you from moving on to something else, since you’re still holding the modulator circle. True bypass provides fast access disabling, and fast access re-enabling when you see fit to undo bypass. A simple Right-click > Bypass would suffice, but I’m guessing you may be avoiding this because your units in the synth aren’t currently uniquely labelled.
