When I program quick automation move (in ramp/curve mode) for the mod wheel, which modulates a filter, on a VST instrument in Nuendo 12 it sounds jerky, like it plays in step mode. It’s not smooth at all.
However, if I put an EQ on as an insert and do the exact same automation it sounds smooth and not jerky at all. Also, if I “bypass” the mod wheel and somehow program the filter on the VST instrument directly, that too sounds smooth and not jerky.
I’ve tried Vital and Phase Plant and they both sound like the automation is in step mode when programing the mod wheel.
I did read some claim about automation being connected to buffer size so I tried reducing it to the lowest but that didn’t change anything. Which makes sense, after all, since the EQ move sounds smooth no matter the buffer size. I also checked both VST2 and VST3 versions of the plug ins, and the problem persisted.
Any ideas? I really don’t understand what the problem is. I really want to be able to automate the mod wheel.
