Unexplainable sytrus clipping Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Hi guys, I'm finishing one project by this time and the last thing I need to resolve is terrible clipping of my sytrus. I use it with violin ensemble presets (dunno which one, i would have to look at it), it has quite synthetic sound and that's exactly what I need, other VSTi's i found over the web all sound too real :| Anyway, do you have any ideas how to get rid of the clipping? CPU load is really low in that quiet passage, where the sytrus plays, and the clipping is hearable even when i render whole track. I tried to lower the number of unison voices - but no change. So I'm open to any ideas or tips for similar sounding VSTi...

when exactly is it clipping?

is it when notes start or stop or is it just random?

could you post the project?
you could remove the other instruments/scores/etc if you don't want to share your entire project

Try to check the start and end points on every voice the patch has, as it might cause abrupt sound that sounds like clipping.

BTW where did you find those patches? Big Grin

It seems to be related to note attack, here's the a cutout, where you can hear it clearly (right after the "impact"): http://www.mediafire.com/?di21zj2yjzn
The patch was already included in sytrus installation...you don't have it there? (I have sytrus v 2.6)

EDIT: It's definitely connected with attack, now I remember that I've been tweaking that preset a little bit, 'coz the original has quite slow attack, plus, original preset doesn't clip...and I doubt that it's caused by something else in track. I can stick here original project later if I still won't know where's the problem.

Yeah, it is definitely the attack setting. Just add a 5-25 ms fade in/attack on the voice. That should help ya.

Or, you can render the strings to wav a bit longer, and then cut the first clippy part sharply.

No time to download but from your description it sounds like it could be something like the waves not being at a neutral point in their cycle when you trigger them. Nudge the attack up ever so slightly to get rid of it, or turn on oscillator sync (it'll start the waveform from the beginning when you trigger it) [i don't know if sytrus has osc sync but meh
