Question

Hi everyone,

 

A newbie here please bare with me. I was searching about this issue of mine but I couldn't find a proper answer so I wanted to ask it here.

I have an issue with my looping. I record some guitar on metronome, the timing is right. Then I split the clip and use ctrl+d to produce loops of the recording. In each cut point, I get to hear a "pluck or blip" sound. It drives me insane and I couldn't figure out why. I tried re-recording the guitar, bouncing to clips to merge them but that sound still there. How can I get rid of it and achieve the perfect loop?

Please help me on this issue, I'd much appreciate it!


Thank you and stay safe everyone!

When splitting clips often it is necessary to slightly fade the ends where the split occurs.

This is because the clip was cut at a point where the audio wave is above or below zero.

Fading eliminates the click caused by splitting at other than the zero crossing point in the wave.

Here are a few places in the documentation where this is discussed:

Hi Tunchelli and welcome to the Cakewalk forums.

When making loops, try to split your clips and a zero crossing or use fade in/out to avoid unexpected noise at the end points of clips.

Kind regards,
