using a midi controller to control the deluge synth engine causes issues

When I use a midi controller to control the synths in the Deluge the velocity of the notes causes the deluge's audio to crackle and distort. It happened on 3 different midi controllers, with headphones and external out. If I turn the velocity up on notes to the around the max it causes the same problem with only a few notes being triggered. Also noticed turning the reverb up to around the max on a group of 10 or more notes causes the audio to fizzle out completely.

    You simply need to turn down the tracks volumes a good bit :)

    What's happening is, the Deluge's default velocity of the pads is 64 (hopefully we'll get a setting option for that soon in an update) and when using the midi controllers the velocity usually goes much higher, so the Deluge starts clipping internally when set to the default volumes of the presets.

    turn it doooowwwwwn theres plenty of resolution. proper gain staging can make a massive difference in depth and color of your mix. you can go from no dynamic range to proper dynamic range and then squash with a limiter if you need that big sound. of course we dont get limiters on the deluge until... well we dont know exactly

    Thanks guys. Turning the track volume down doesn't change the clipping, just volume in which I hear the clipping. I think the default velocity that it receives is set too high.

    you might have to turn the sample level down instead of the track level

    It's only a problem with the synth engine though :(

    Every time this has happened to me, it went away when turning down the master vol of the track or the osc volumes.
    If it doesn't, maybe something ain't right

    are you using 24 bit version?

    You referring to the OS?

    no, the adventure kid waveforms

    Oh, I am talking about the subractive synth engine.

    Hey @mpiecora! Thought I should just mention that I've let Rohan know about this and he's going to look into it. I'll update this if he finds anything. If the issue develops any more, or you'd like to send us synth/song files, feel free to email me @ sam.carswell@synthstrom.com :smile:
