Release notes for Beta 11:
Tweaked cathode follower algorithm slightly to improve accuracy.

New Speaker Dynamics modeling. The Speaker Dynamics control adjusts the amount of virtual voice coil heating. Higher values result in more heating and commensurately higher voice coil resistance. The Speaker Time Constant will be reset to 2 seconds for existing presets. A typical guitar speaker has a voice coil thermal time constant in the range of several seconds.

Fixed excessive bias excursion for amps with capacitor on cathode follower output, i.e. Dirty Shirley, Friedman BE/HBE.

Fixed Presence taper for Diezel models.

Reworked all Friedman BE/HBE models based on latest version of amp. There are now three "Voicings": V1, V2 and V3 corresponding to the three positions of the Voice switch.
