If I pick a patch without unison. Say, a single synth with 2 VCOs at relatively high levels (90%), then, if I play 5 or 6 notes chords, I get crackling/ saturation even on the simple chorus/chorus synth effect.
I probably did not notice before because before 1.04 I was not using modulation fx at all...
Now I guess the modulation fx input level is too sensitive and it requires to drastically reduce VCO levels in a way that will just produce huge volume differences between patches.
vwizz, I have had this issue prior to 1.0.4 and noticed it on a bunch of factory patches. I would love if you could try these and see if you Find the same issues. I have others test and they don’t have the crackling and popping. Even if I turn the volume way down it’s there. Like you I have to make dramatic changes to the VCOs in the mixer which often negatively alters the sound.
I will provide sound files to what I am hearing:
Mighty Brass Factory Preset: https://soundcloud.com/markwalkerjr/mig ... ne-slow-mw
Laser Controlled Oscillator Preset: https://soundcloud.com/markwalkerjr/moog-one-clicking
For Laser Controlled Oscillator, do the following:
1. Call up preset
2. Turn on Sequencer (as it is not on by default though a sequence is programmed into it) and press play
3. Within a few seconds without even pressing the mod wheel you should get clicks/pops occurring as you hear in my sound clip.
4. If you then hold down the sustain pedal it goes into the full out glitch you hear later in the sound clip.
For Mighty Brass, all You have to do is move the Mod Wheel up to get the clicking and popping you hear in the example happening while holding down a big chord.
I have also discovered this issue on a variety of other presets when using the sustain pedal. The clicking and popping is erratic and happens over time as notes build up. These presets named: Poly Splitter, PolyPop, Tobor Radar Robot, Blather, Bronze Garbage begin to click and pop when the sustain pedal is used and notes begin to stack. I’ve also found others since. Looking forward to seeing what you or others find when testing these factory presets.
