With the latest update I am keying with an external keyer as usual. Something new has popped up. When I key down on the make there is a leading tone....a slight beep. I don't think it is being transmitted but I can hear it in the sidetone and make it hard to send initially.

I may be hearing the same thing as you, Greg, but it sounds to me like I am hearing receiver noise briefly before I hear the sidetone. I am using the internal keyer.

I'm also hearing what Ed is hearing, but it took a lot of very
careful listening to find it. I can only hear the "leading edge"
noise using headphones. I would not have noticed it had I
not been looking for it. I would not be surprised to see
it go away with vs. 1.0. Looks like they've been working very
hard on perfecting the CW experience. Like you, I use an
external keyer. Keying sounds great here.
