Hi everybody - long time listener, first time caller
Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong area or has already been answered...
I'm having a problem with the Sabian AA Hats, on a single articulation only: the 1/2 Shank is "late" compared to all the others, but only in the ambient channels (OH RM Amb3) - the direct mic is "in time" with all of it's own articulations. This is happening consistently thru all velocity levels.
I noticed the same thing (but worse) on the Paiste Sound Edge while auditioning a replacement kit piece - I sniffed around here for info, then ran the patch from my BFD2 downloads in the user area, trashed and rebuilt. That fixed the issue for the Paiste Sound Edge (I recorded a "before and after" to make sure) but the Sabian AA hats are still fishy (which makes sense, the patch only mentioned the Paiste hats).
It's not a huge deal - basically, if I mute the direct mic during a "quicker" hat pattern (16th notes-ish) that alternates through the different articulations, my drummer sounds drunk.
I'm pretty sure* it's not user error, everything else is working normally.
I'm in PT 9.0.6, 2011 MBP w/8gb RAM (only the first 2gb are relevant though
), BFD2 data on it's own dedicated 7200rpm FW800 drive, high detail all pieces, nobody is going to read this, load on demand is on, "all hats variable" is off, load all to RAM is off, etc. Got same issue in standalone with different streaming engine settings.
See pic attached - the direct mic is panned left (the top waveform), all ambient channels are panned right (the bottom).
It's each articulation played once (at arbitrary velocity 124, on grid) from closed to open, shanks first (Ped, CS, CT, 1/4S, 1/4T, 1/2S, 1/2T, etc). The waveform with the black square below it is the articulation that's late
I know, it sounds anal... I would usually have said "that's the way it is" if there wasn't a patch to fix the same kind of thing in another kit piece. And I like those hats
The Paiste was about 80ms late before the patch, this looks about 45ms.
Let me know if anybody has any ideas! Thanks lots, and sorry for the huge post...
