Just bought the 4knob PopD and enjoy the sounds. A few samples seem to have been cut with a short delay before onset though.
- Load Essential D in Halion (Sonic SE3 standalone)
- Set the MIDI velocity output from the keyboard to fixed, minimum (velocity = 1 of 127)
- Play the notes E4 and F#4 together and slowly move the sensitivity knob on the 4Knob PopD from position 12 o´clock (straight up) to about 3 o´clock. In part of this area the notes drift out of sync, and there is a flamming effect.
Also try the same with E4 and G4 together, and the flamming is present all the way down to the lowest sensitivity setting.
I also reproduced this in Cubase 11, with recorded quantized notes to make sure they were playing in perfect sync, and got the same result at velocity 1-9.
This seem to affect notes between F4 -> G#4 and depends on the sensitivity setting, and as far as i know it only affects low velocity samples (i only tested velocity 1-9).
The delay is big enough to notice when playing soft passages on these notes, and layering of multiple patches can be problematic if the individual samples that make up the instrument are not in perfect sync (and phase) with each other.
I would be happy to hear if anyone else can reproduce this, and if this could be fixed in a future update?
