Ableton Analog Confusion

Post by tacotinaX » Thu Aug 15, 2019 5:12 am


Based on the information about Analog on Ableton's site, I'm a bit confused. In the image in the link below (showing how analog's signal flow), it seems as though if I have Osc2, Fil2, and Amp2 turned off and have "To F2" set to 100% in Fil1 there shouldnt be any sound because 100% of it would go to Fil2 which then routes to Amp2 which is turned off. However, I still get sound when Amp1 is turned on, and if I pan Amp1 left, the sound pans left. I'm confused because I thought none of the sound should be going to Amp1 because I sent it all to Fil2 which then goes to Amp2. ... ksqzrjwWM:

You're right, there shouldn't be any sound.
I just tried to see if there could be a bug... and during a few seconds after I turned off AMP2 (and filter 2 too, which is not obliged as soon as AMP2 is turned off) and pressing a note repeatedly I had a few ones coming out of AMP1 (which I set to left to follow your example). This is definitely not supposed to happen. I can't reproduce now, but you should definitely report as a bug to
