Upgrading from Volcano 1.x to Volcano 2 is safe and easy: installing Volcano 2 will not replace or delete the previous Volcano 1.x plug-in. Both versions will co-exist and can both be used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Volcano 1.x without problems!
All presets created with Volcano 1.x can be loaded in Volcano 2. If you upgraded from Volcano 1 to the new version, your original Volcano 1 presets will be accessible via the V1 Preset Folder item in the preset menu. See also Loading presets.
