[solved] few ms silence at beginning of rendered VST instrument

SOLVED - I’m a dork. My plugin had a few ms of attack set, so when the sample rendered the first few ms were super quiet. I set the attack to 0 and it renders exactly from the beginning.


Hi, I’m using a couple VST instruments, and when I render all/part of the track to sample (via render selection/track/pattern/song to sample), the resulting sample has a few ms of silence before the audio information. This is irritating because I have to manually edit each sample to remove the silence at the beginning. I have PDC enabled, so I’m not sure why this is happening. Is PDC something that is good in theory, but in practice might not work right because plugins don’t report their delays properly? From what I can tell this only happens with instrument plugins, not effects plugins.Thanks
