Automating Operator Frequencies - Logic Pro X
« on: November 02, 2020, 08:04:22 pm »
Hi

If I try to automate an operator's fixed frequency value in Logic the resulting playback creates a stepped playback rather than smoothly raising/lowering the output pitch. Is this something that can be avoided?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to Arturia forums.

I'm on Windows.

Can you post a audio example?

Are you drawing the automation in your DAW? If so, and you are hearing the stepping on playback, then that can be about the automation resolution in your DAW.

Hi - thanks for reply. Yeah - drawing a simple automation between two values for the fixed pitch for operators creates a stepped playback.

Video example here:

In some cases stepping can be about missing or poor smoothing in Arturias synths.
But in this case it's - as far as i can tell - not about that.
A modulation like the one you do in your video sounds quite smooth in my DAW.
It actually sounds like you have some kind of quantizing going on. Or perhaps it can be about the automation resolution in your DAW. I can't help with Logic.

If you in generel does'nt have the same behavior with synths from any manufactors, then it can be a DX7 Logic related issue. In that case i suggest you contact Arturia support.

Logic user and DX7V owner here :-)

Unfortunately I'm at work at the moment. I'll have a look this evening when I am back home (currently it's 12:50pm here) and i'll report back.
