When I add a default flanger and play and stop immediately, after a short period of time a delay comes out of Renoise. Flanger settings affect it somehow, but not completely remove it, at least not always. Should it be that way? I think not.
great LFO time. (e:changed from ampolitude to time, which is correct)
Also if you stop the playback too soon the delay won’t have time to sound, and the delay time depens on the delay time. But it is there.
I’ve become intimate with this glitch. It is sensitive to the feedback and amount parameters, obviously worse if you have more agressive settings. 1ms is usually ‘safe’. I find it doesn’t ‘peak out’ if you put the delay no smaller than 0.7 - but if you use less feedback and amount then you can squeeze the delay lower to 0.6 or 0.5 without the glitch.
I’ve got other flange vsts and they do not suffer the same glitch - you can set the delay to up to (but not including) 0ms without any glitch.
hehe, sometimes I’ve written Renoise songs that actually depend on that glitch! But I agree it should be fixed…
I was having a problem with the native Flange dsp giving me soft static, hissing or crackling under any setting. The part about feedback clued me in and I rearranged the DSP order (moving the flange up the chain (left) for less feedback) and it fixed my static.
I think I want to start pushing for the native effects to be improved a little. I have particular beef with (other than the flange glitch) the phase issues with the band EQs, and a phase/delay issue with the compressor.
I don’t touch the native EQs anymore as a result. On some older samples the amount of phase distortion is yuck. Plug in the same settings on a good quality parametric and it’s pure smoothness.
The comp is usuable in the root chain (and a nice savage comp it is too), but once used in a send with wet/dry % then you can hear the ugliness.
I mean, I’m at the stage in my composing where I really go for great third party plugs, irrespective of cpu or cost, but surely we should be providing beginners with simple quality effects?
