Accessibility for Superior Drummer 2 and Addictive Drums
F9 now jumps to the next available VST
improved F11 menu for Addictive Drums with options to clear the kit or keep only certain pieces.
F10 menu for Superior Drummer 2 to access most menus and add/remove SDX and EZX libraries
F11 shortcut for Superior Drummer 2 to load and preview instruments. Select a kit piece then an instrument. Select Preview to preview all instruments.
Press CTRL + F11 to preview the current piece.
When Jaws screen reader is running SDSE will use it for all status messages ("checking reaper", "starting export job")
Jaws screen reader doesn't read the main menus from Superior Drummer 2 so SDSE uses the voice from Jaws to read them.

Other changes
Preset name: it is now possible to type a preset name up to 16 characters. If the name is longer than 4 (recommended maximum) it's displayed in red and a random 2 character code is prepended to ensure that the filenames will be unique.
Export Mode: "per VST" now renders all hihats and cymbals as "Medium" ("per VST" = high except for some sound libraries and cymbals)
New Maximize option "samples" to normalize all samples (useful for modules that can only load a single sample for each zone)
Sort .dsnd in folders: settings to sort by kit instead of instrument
fixed possible issue preventing export from starting with Kontakt 5.6 or newer.
The DrumIt Five Editor add-on is deprecated, the Layout editor from DKit Manager can be used to edit the kit layout used by SDSE when building .dkit files.
SSD4: fixed issue when exporting pieces with layered one-shot wav samples.
BFD3: force map when needed (disable the Presets/Key button in BFD3 to avoid overwriting the default mapping)
