    Yes I notice that as well but was thinking it due to me always leaving the box unchecked in the Insert Soft synth options.  I just opened a blank project and while inserting AD2 the check box is Greyed out so this conferms that Midi output is not an option for AD2.  

    It's weird Richard would end up with double notes unless that something that can happen if you use Comping mode. I never use that I always use overwrite. But good Idea to look in Event list. 

    There is a UN DUPE    CAL script found under Process. But if it's an entire lane then that would work best to just delete it.

    Here is a screenshot showing the original clip from AD2, which I pasted after copying, this is what I think caused the echo,, I reckon I will delete it all and redo to see what happens. I like clip looping with the smart tool as you just drag it along to extend the loop but I often find it outs the drums out of their pattern and starts the new looped bit offbeat. Hence I tried copy and paste.

    Is it still there? Normally my experience while doing a copy and paste or duplicate during playback, I get that delay/echo effect. It goes away when press stop and play again. 

    Try to delete everything that was copied and paste and do Ctrl+D right through to your end time. 

    CTRL D? What does it do? Looked but there are endless shortcuts.

    So this is Midi data

    Sounds like double notes or a feedback loop. 
    The feedback loop is easy Turn off Midi output for the synth. This is found in the synth properties. 
    To see if there’s double note open in PVR and drag any note up or down to see if there’s a note hidden underneath 

    Hi John, thanks,

    Sorry but how do I get to synth properties?

    as to the other option, I opened piano roll and dragged a note, but it seems to want drag and draw, when using the "move" cursor or smart tool. So there are of course two notes visible as it has drawn one. Its never done that before, probably yours truly has switched something on or off without meaning to. 

  4. Hi,

    I am using an AD2 drum clip for a song, I need about 5 minutes. Clip groove looping has proved a bit unreliable, so I tried copy / paste "special" for say 10 reps. to extend the drum track.

    All fine except now I have an echo on the drums that were pasted in. Any ideas?

    ( My own view is the little man who lives in my DAW has today decided to annoy me with a new problem, but for a more rational explanation I am sure someone knows what has happened? )



  5. Yes that's what I am coming round to realise! Its almost instinctive to use the pedal, I even do this when arranging string parts, until I listen to the mushy sound I generated! Translating my music into a digital language after years of an acoustic piano is difficult.

    But.............. thanks to the kind folks on this forum I am emerging from the primeval swamp ! ☺️ But seriously , thanks for helping out. 👍

    Hi all,

    I am busy with a  song with Spitfire Audio Orchestral strings playing, and I have split the track, and deleted the end section, as it didn't work, but the strings are still playing.(endlessly) I've done a screen shot, anyone know what todays ***** up is by yours truly? How do I shut it up?




    I'm trying to sort this while I wait for help from someone who knows what they are doing, I kept looking for a reason, and now I can see what looks like a big endless block of sustain, again see image. So assuming this is the problem, my next question is;

    1. How on earth did I manage to do that?

    2. How do i delete it?



  7. I either press Ctrl M or load it in the FX part of the track. But to be honest I have little real knowledge of what the difference is! I think when it is Ctrl M it does a similar thing to the "create region FX", and is preferable as it updates melodyne when the track changes. So, it seems the best way is to bypass the region FX as this is the non destructive method. Steep learning curve for me but my vocals are poor so I need to prioritise my learning of Melodyne! Thanks again.

  8. Okay, had an exhaustive  look, and I think its a Melodyne problem with the upgrade.  But my  new tracks work fine when I open Melodyne 5, so I am simply going to move on,  this problem track was mixed down anyway and I'll just accept the mix.

    I simply haven't the time to figure out what went wrong,  but if it happens again obvs I will have no choice but to investigate. Its not ideal but I am so short of time i cant be going down these rabbit holes when I hit a glitch, and not writing or recording anything!


    I couldnt figure out how to delete melodyne from a track retrospectively, how is this done? 

  9. Hi all,

    Just when I thought it was safe to get back into the water and do some work without pleading for help from the forum yet again,  disaster. Opened up the track ( see screenshot) and all of the vocals will not give a sound. Signal is there as can be seen,  but in terms of sound output, nothing, zilch, nada. Obviously I have used melodyne and vocal thickening, but none of the tracks emits a squeak. Solo them all one by one and still nothing.  Checked the buses etc.

    Everything was fine last time I worked on the track. I'm baffled. It seems every time this forum helps me out and I move on, another weird problem turns up out of the blue? I dont think I have done anything, never mind anything wrong, I  simply closed the project and opened it again. Its the same for my three saved earlier versions. AAAAAGGGHHH!

    help appreciated....
