Distorted sound when running Dexed instrument through Blue Arp

I’m new to Renoise and DAWs. I have Blue Arp plugin setup to feed arpeggiated notes to a Dexed VST plugin instrument. The arpeggios sound great, but on initial key press there is a strong punch of a sound, almost like a kick sample. When the Dexed instrument itself is highlighted, the synth keyboard sounds fine on its own. Am I doing something wrong?

Maybe try to disable auto-suspend for Dexed. Just a guess, I have no idea here.

Thanks for the response ffx. Auto-suspend doesn’t appear to affect the issue. I just tried creating a new project and re-adding the plugins and it seems to be working normally now. I must have messed with a setting somewhere that screwed it up.
