Avoiding the thump on sequences (also ROMs)

Author Avoiding the thump on sequences (also ROMs)
hi, I've been doing some sequencing sort of Berlin style on the Wiard. I've noticed I'm getting a bit of a thump with each note.

I had a similar thing on my Blacet and it seems the answer there was to turn down the output of the envelope generator. As you can attenuate the CV to the filter I assume that the thump is coming from the CV to the VCA.

So on the Wiard I've run the envelator (that was in ADSR mode but I think it also happens in the other modes) out to an attenuator and back to the Z mod of the Mixolator but I'm still not quick getting there. Maybe it's the shape of the envelope - I've tried backing off the Envelator attack a little and also bending the slopes by feeding back the Envelator output to the D mod - again - still not quite there.

Anyone else also explored this area and has experience to share?

Of course I can try patching the Blacet EG out to the Mixolator and see if that does it..or simply decide for that particular application to use the Blacet..

second question - and I've already put this up in the Frac forum, does anyone know what the various wavetables are for the Grant Richter PPG/VS ROM and the Quantizer ROM?

I have both and apart from using them I know very little about them.
A general hint first: the Envelator has no ADSR mode, only an output that's labelled ADSR and that actually provides a pseudo-ADSR approach by crossfading the single envelopes, which you ideally set to AD and AR, respectively, and you have to fiddle with the individual times to get as close to a real ADSR as your patch allows.

You might want to post a more detailed description of your patch or even a photo.

Until then, here's some further thoughts that may or may not be related to what you're experiencing:

- If my memory serves, the Mixolator has a quirk of "overshooting" when Z is fully clockwise. This is best understood by using it as a panner. Observe how the stereo positions "snap back" a bit as the pot setting or CV approaches maximum.

- Maybe your Attack settings aren't compatible with what you're trying to do and what the Envelator can provide ADSR-wise. Maybe you want a slow attack and you set one of the two single envelopes to slow attack but left the other one at a faster setting?
