hey guys!
when im programming bassounds, i get this little clicks on the sounds which are driving
me crazy. anyone ever encountered this? should i send it back for a repair?
resonance is down, just a normal patch. im running out of ideas why this is happening.

Hi ole,

This is a natural occurrence with Envelopes that can have extremely short times.

What you're hearing is an Envelope (probably the Amp Envelope's Release) slamming shut when you release a key.

If you're also hearing clicking on the start of a note, it's the Attack portion of the Envelope.

Whenever you rapidly go from sound to silence (or silence to sound) you're temporarily creating a near-vertical line in the waveform, which creates many harmonics that then sounds like a click.

Slight increases in ATTACK time and RELEASE time will reduce or eliminate the clicks on the beginning and end of the sound (respectively).

It sounds like a too short release.
