Audio pops/crackles from Pro-3

Audio pops/crackles from Pro-3
« on: April 27, 2020, 08:29:40 AM »
I have been putting out some horror type audio cues lately on Youtube, and started to notice Audio Crackles/pops in the recordings which I initially thought was my monitors, then spent time working on the audio interface etc to try and eliminate. etc but couldn't.

I finally plugged headphones directly into the Pro-3 and I notice them there too. They can sometimes be triggered by lightly moving the filter (P6 filter)
Has anyone else noticed these?
They are not always there on every patch, but some do for sure on my unit as I can hear them in the headphones plugged directly very clearly.

You can hear them in this video with monitors/headphones.
Around the 21, 22, 23 seconds mark it can be heard + more throughout.

Yes, I've noticed it too - small distortion crackles when I play.

I'm pretty sure it's coming from the OSC 3.

Try patch U3 P1 - turn down OSC 1 & 2 and  turn OSC 3 up to maximum - crackles?

Mine does.

This is a known bug on the latest BETA OS wherein small clicks/pops are heard when the FX are active.  We should have an updated OS available in the next few days.  Sorry for any inconvenience!

Yes I do actually. Osc 3 seems to be doing it.

Try F5 P2 Horn Section.
Same thing, turn Osc 1 and 2 down, and then play a relatively high note, and tweak the filter.
I get lots of crackle from that. Either through my interface, or headphones plugged directly into front of unit.

Had this too, think it is just clipping the effects stage, happened after last update.

Thanks for for being so pro active on the updates, this is fast becoming my fav synth ever.
