hi eurose :)
thx i'll try more gate ... but in my setting i don't touch gate and it works fine. the problem appears after 15min playing or so ..and sometime not 100% allways .. weird one. i guess my pc is too old.

and what about the fact that sound i beatRepeated 3 minutes ago are still played by the beat repeat (sometime) like if a buffer was not 100% reseted. :?: that's a weird one

I've got the same problem last night... not really a gate problem, is like the beat repeat was catching the sound late and then stopping all sound through it.

This problem has been around since 7 was released! It was definitely a pain since I would always have it "enabled" in the chain during dj sets and the audio-cut out was fatal. My temporary work-around was to map the same knob that i use for "grabbing" beats to enable/disable the plugin based on range.

7.0.5 seemed alright till literally 5 minutes ago while I was warping and having a mix with some tunes... and hey presto, the bug appeared again, with a similar effect to what agodzillab experienced (a sound that was beat repeated a few minutes ago). Strangely enough, this previously-beat repeated sound only was audible at 1/32 Interval 1/2 Grid. When moving to 1/8 Interval and 1/4 Grid onwards (I have an inverted Interval/Grid knob motion), it repeated the currently playing audio, albeit, 1 bar late.

While toying around with ways to return normal beat repeat behavior (in the event this were to happen on stage), I found the following workaround:-

Select the plugin, hit delete, and immediately undo that operation

This seems to 'reset' the plugin and everything is dandy once again :)

Hopefully this gets sorted permanently in the next bug fix! |
