Ok this is weird, and took me a few minutes to figure out how to duplicate it, but I now have the steps that should duplicate it every time.
- Create a Padsynth instrument.
- Set bandwidth to 2 and growth to 0. Leave everything else default.
- Generate test note. Should just be a sine wave.
- Hit clear and generate test note again.
- Draw the “1” back up to recreate the sine wave
- Hit generate test note. It should still be a sine wave.
Now in the master spectrum, everything is shifted downward dramatically. If a note is loud enough you can see the peak around -90db, but mostly it’s just completely off the chart. Spectrum VST plugins show it fine (checked just to make sure I wasn’t insane). And it’s just… it’s just a sine wave, I really don’t understand. I even tried resampling it. You can even switch to other instruments, and the other instruments will display fine, but when you switch back to this instrument it will still be off the spectrum screen. In fact you can save the song and reopen it and it will still be this way.
I also duplicated it on my netbook running Linux Mint, so I can make it happen on windows and linux.
Obviously not that bad of a bug, just a minor annoyance under an extremely rare condition. But thought I’d post it anyways, thought it was weird.
