Experimental update for Synesthesia

Synesthesia PB3-10 download link

New stuff:
- Compensated trim control
- Optional limiter with visual feedback
- BAE 1074 presets
- Yamaha PM700 presets

- high input levels generating audio mayhem

So, thanks to Langston Masingale some new presets has been added (and some others will follow soon). The ones with the "-EQ" suffix also emulate the frequency characteristics (a kind of "rough" estimation). The "-A" version is the one closest to the measurements, and I have also added some variations as well (-B, -C, etc...).

Also I have realized that high input levels (sub-bass and the like) can result is some serious distortions (not the nice kind ). So now all presets include a limiter that keeps nasty stuff from happening. If you drive the limiter too hard you will get an indication (bright red bracket around the "Drive" slider).

Also, the "Drive" slider has a second function now, if DYN GRAPH is off, it applies an input trim (+/) dB that is compensated at the output. Practically this can be used to control the amount of saturation. When DYN GRAPH is enabled, the slider controls the amount of dynamic saturation (just like in previous versions).
