I’m trying to automate some filter sweeps, but the automation doesn’t happen at anywhere near the resolution I want.
I’m using 256 frame buffers, running Cubase 11 Pro on Windows 10 Pro using a Steinberg UR-22 interface and the Yamaha ASIO drivers.
Here’s my automation track, running at 144 bpm:
What I hear is just a couple of hits, and the sixteenths hits at the end all mush together like an open filter.
VST has been advertised as supporting sample accurate automation for many years, so how can I actually achieve this?
(Note that the sound I hear sounds like it automates even slower than the 5.8 milliseconds I would get from “buffer rate” automation.)
