Found a bad clipping bug

Recommended Posts

So took along time to figure this issue out, seemed like for no reason i was receiving unwanted distorting/clipping through the headphone jack, 1/4" & XLR outputs. As you can imagine, clipping is a horrible issue to have with a machine like this.

Turns out the Bit Depth & Sample Rate in "Vintage Digital" delay was giving me the problem. In order to eliminate the clipping, Bit Depth has to be on 24 and Sample Rate has to be on 48- basically making it a fairly useless "vintage" delay. And even still, there's still some clipping. Having those two settings adjusted down makes the clipping much much worse. 

It used to be my favorite delay but for some reason, I believe after one of the updates, the clipping started.

 

Anyone else have that issue?

Either way, hope I was able to help some of you.

They added the "Headroom" parameter on this model to deal with this. Just increase it until the clipping goes away.

Also make sure you’re not driving it too hard. If its after the amp, use the amp block’s channel volume to get closer to unity gain so the Vintage Delay block isn’t being hit too hard.
