.45 problems with volume envelopes
« on: September 28, 2006, 01:10:50 »
making a perfectly normal ramp down in volume on a bassdrum in the last few versions that i've looked at (.39 -> .45 and quite possibly previously) gives a weird gritty noise when previewing in the instrument tab and a nasty click on finish when using that instrument in a song.  it's most noticeable on long 808/909 style bassdrums. it seems to be fine for other types of sound for some reason, trying a snare produces the desired volume roll off with no artifacts or problems, i think some other parts of tunes i've done have noticeable clicks that may be related but will have to track those down further.
i have a tiny example file handy here and can email if necessary.

As you describe it, its something that will be hard to recreate, so your example song will come in handy :)

I think i have posted something about this as well some time ago (on the old board),i have found when using the Dxx (volume slide) in the pattern instead of the volume envelope in the instrument tab that it sounds alot better.

After quite some time without hearing anything about this bug (not even the example song) I'm going to close the bug. If you still want us to pursue this bug, please reply on this topic so we can reopen the bug for you.

(if possible With the example song. :) )
