Animoog 2.2.3 Crackles w/iconnect MIDI 2+

Post by timemaster » Tue Nov 18, 2014 1:32 pm

iPad 4 with iOS 7.1.2 Animoog 2.2.3 & iconnect MIDI 2+ (latest Firmware 1.0.6 )

I'm getting static sounding crackles in the audio stream via the iconnect. Previous version of Animoog was good. All another audio apps work fine, this is only an issue with Animoog. Animoog works fine on it's own through headphones. I have adjusted all buffers/setting with iconnect and still crackling audio.

Don't want to update to iOS8 yet

Can anyone else confirm this?

Regards
Animoog, Filtatraon, Minitaur ( firmware V2.0) , Minitaur Editor ( V2.0 ), Logic Pro 10.0.7, iConnect MIDI 2+, iPad 4, OSX 10.9.5

I'm using an iPad Air, running the lastest iOS8 version and Animoog 2.2.3 running this through an iConnectMIDI4+

I have horrible distortion and crackle problems using Animoog, but not not anything else. I had at one time (maybe an update or two ago) it working for about 5 mins and then the crackle would start up.

No solve unfortunately

Thanks, seems it's an animo issue. Any way to roll back to an earlier version?

I have the same issue with the sound crackling a lot using Audio Pass Through with Animoog on iOS 8.x and yes all the other mainstream synths work fine even Alchemy (RIP).

Frankly I was quite surprised and doubted at first that the problem was with Animoog, as it's performance to date has been stellar.

Hoping the Animoog Devs get on this issue. It is crippling for those of us who use and rely on Audio Pass Through and all of its goodness.

I'm having the exact same problem with 2.2.5, iPad 4, iOS 8.3, iConnect MIDI 2+.

I will try e-mailing Moog support directly, as this is the only music app on my iPad that has this problem.

ah ha... I figured out how to fix it temporarily. In the iConnectivity iConfig app, set the audio configuration to 1 - 44100Hz, 4 Channels, 16bit. I had mine set to 7 - 48000Hz, 4 Channels, 24bit, but even setting it to 16bit didn't make a difference, it has to be 44100Hz.

Bummer that that's the case - hopefully this can be addressed by Moog.

Similar issue - some patches do not seem to recognize the sustain / note off from the controller. The sound is a very quick pulse without any envelope. I have tried various controllers and other iPad synths as well as many Animoog synths that do work - it seems that some of the patches have this gate response as if they are responding to a very short CV rather than the articulation on the controller.

FYI, Animoog only supports 44100 kHz sample rates at this time, any other sample rate will inherently cause crackling.

We released Animoog 2.3.0 today, which supports other sample rates, it should now work fine with your iConnect MIDI 2+ running at 48kHz.

Hi, gbevin

Can you tell us if Filtatron will receive an update to audio quality as well? Would be great to see 24 bit/96khz on filtatron :)

At the moment there are no plans for that, sorry.

I discovered the fix with the latest Animoog and iConnect MIDI 2+ a few weeks ago - thank you for the update!

Animoog 2 2 3 Crackles w/iconnect MIDI 2

Yes, thats nornal behaviour. If you set cycles too high, Soundblaster/Adlib sound will start to skip, while Midi will produce sort of a rubberband effect.
Why dont you just set cycles=max?
