Sorry if this has been covered a million times already - I'm sure it has - but I'm having a little problem with unwanted digital clicks.
They come in two varieties. The first is, I assume, a failing on the part of my cheapo laptop, running Vista - basically, clicks invade my patches at all kinds of random times, making them really unusable for live performance. Any thoughts?
The second is more about my patching skills, I guess. Every time a sound (sample or synthetic) starts or stops, there's a digital click. Now, I'm familiar with the basics of digital sound, and I know that without some sort of amp ramp (min 5 or 10ms) that the start and end of any sound there's going to be a click. Is it just a case of having loads of messy line~, *~ and 0, 1 0.05 type messages all over the place? or is there a simpler, more automatic way of doing things? Mind you, I believe I've even been hearing clicks on the start & end of silent samples, so I wonder if the clicks are coming from somewhere else....
I'd be glad of any help, or just a point towards a previous topic covering this.
