I spoke to a couple of users privately on the forum regarding this one and they hadn’t seen it before. I’m currently running BBM v220.127.116.11 on Windows 10. Occasionally I get an issue where if I have consecutive bass notes in a row of the same pitch, the volume will increase on the notes, even if I drop the velocity.
Here is an example:
You can hear the notes increasing in volume and distorting on the 2nd and 4th bars of this section.
It doesn’t do it on every note if they’re in a row, nor does it do it on the same note in different songs. I’ve tried it with different versions of the BBM as well as different kits with bass. Has anyone come across this before? It doesn’t just do it in the BBM, it does it on the BB itself as well when I sync the project.
** Since I first spoke to people about this I accidentally found a way to correct it. If you put a velocity of 1 on the note directly below the one to be played it evens out the volume and doesn’t increase. The only other way I’d found to fix it was to increase the quantization to the smallest notes I could and put a hit of velocity 1 in between the notes (basically putting in a stop).
Here’s an example where I’ve put the velocity 1 notes below the bass notes. This runs the original song part first then the corrected one.
You can see the velocity 1 notes I’ve put directly under the playing bass notes.
Anyway, if anyone ever comes across this problem (or whether it’s just me) there’s a fix for it here as well.
