"Bend" affects playback where it shouldn't; increases velocity of the drumset

• Jul 21, 2015 - 19:19

I discovered that the new "bend" feature in 2.0 can effectively be used for playback, so I started messing around with it. After adding in a few bends here and there to one of my arrangements I noticed that every time the Electric Guitar plays a bend, it sounds as if the drumset accented whatever it was playing in that beat (or even half beat). This also happens when other instruments play bends, and it seems only my drumset it affected.
I just thought I'd report this and see if anyone is having the same problem or if there is a solution of some sort.


Can you post the score you are having problems with and tell us exactly how to reproduce the issue? Where to start playback, which note to listen to, etc?

Here is a section of the arrangement that has the problem. There are "prall prall" lines above the notes that are being "bended" (for the look of a tremolo). (The prall prall playbacks are turned off and the bend notations are hidden.) (Also, the bends are customized to sound like a tremolo. However, the problem still occurs with regular bends)
When you play the piece, listen to the drums and watch the prall pralls. When the bends play, the drums accent at the same time.

Yes, I can hear it. It's more noticeable with the drum kit you have selected in the Mixer than with the Standard kit - I think there is clipping as well. I think you may be pushing the mechanism a bit harder than intended by having a bend go back and forth like that - it's sending an awful lot of MIDI messages and something is, maybe, getting overloaded. Not an excuse, just an observation. No idea what's going on really.
