Title: Deep eMotion
Post by: bulls hit on August 21, 2020, 01:49:23 PM
Hi guys, new Mopho user here. My first grown-up synth.
I'm exploring the factory presets and quite enamoured with one called Deep eMotion.
However it's got a glitch that happens randomly as the sound evolves and is not related to how hard the keys are struck.
I record through a Universal Audio 4-710D.
When I zoom in on the recorded waveform, the glitches are clearly visible as a discontinuity in the wave.
I'm almost certain it's not happening in the signal chain as adjusting the output level of the synth or the preamp input/output levels, switching the compressor in and out etc. makes no difference.
Has anyone else experienced this with the Deep eMotion preset?

So tried this out again today. The glitch does seem to happen pretty consistently when the note is first struck, as well as more randomly during sustain.

Is it worth trying a factory reset?

I can't speak to this specific patch, because I no longer have a Mopho. But, I do remember that the Mopho's mixer was subject to clipping if both oscillators are on at full-volume. Back off the oscillator levels a bit and see if that helps.
