Reverb Artifacts

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I'm a new user to Samplitude, and I like what I see so far...

Anyway, I'm having this bizarre problem where if I stop in the middle of a song, and the position bar goes back to a silent point before the song (i.e. there are no tracks with any content at that point), and press play again, I here some popping coming from the reverb. If I stop at a point where there is total silence, i.e. at the end of a song where there are no more objects, then I don't hear the popping whe I press play again. Actually, these reverb artifacts happen if I replay pretty much anywhere in the project, it's just that the artifacts are easier to hear when there is no material underneath.

It is as if the Aux sends are not being cleared when stop is pressed, at least the last sample anyway, and when you press play, it resets it to zero or to whatever the last level was, and the reverb reacts to this.

If there is no reverb on the aux channel, then this issue does not happen (or at least, it is not perceptible).

Would I be setting something wrong? Could this be a bug (there appears to be a few of those lying around...)?

Thanks.

Norm

hi,

it's a known old problem, and if you load a vsti on a midi track and hit Play at the star of the song, you will hear a tail of the vsti sound ...

There's a lot of post about it in the forum, and currently, I don't know / remember if the dev have said something new about that. Must live with it... :)

The problem is in the bounce too, so don't bounce too much near the start, let some silence to cut it at the mastering stage, if not, you will hear tails into the intro of the song ...

You can hit play at the end of the song, in a silence part, to unload buffers, then go to start, Play or bounce, the problem disappears.

cheers

Thank you Phil.

I don't like the idea of just living with it, and I hope someone from Magix will recognize it, track it in their bug reporting system, so we can get a fix someday.

I searched in the forums, and couldn't find it (ok, maybe I did not search long enough). Perhaps other contributors to the forum are calling it something else. Would you have a clue on what to look for?

I know for shure that this is recognized and discussed with developers already. I think part (or most part) of the problem lies in certain plugs/fx and the way they behave - (ie I only have it with NI-combos/amp sims). Its not a general problem AFAIK, and to my understanding there was a "price to be paid" to accomondate for some of these..

So I think they're still pondering to find a good solution.

In the meantime, I live with it, but I have learned to flush the buffers before a final bounce if there's any of those present in the vip. (just play an empty space for a couple of seconds before the bounce to let the tail "empty itself")

That IS the solution - needs doing automatically thats all.

Normal playback is not such a problem.
