Random voice stealing / polyphony

Postby AlexNagel » 29 Aug 2018, 15:14

Dear fellow NORD users,

I noticed a strange random behavior concerning polyphony / voice stealing in my Nord Stage 3 (OS v1.46) that was *not* there in the NS2. When sustaining a low note using a sample in the synth section on PANEL A while adding further higher pitched sustained notes using another sample in the synth section on PANEL B , the lowest note sometimes keeps playing (as it did on the NS2!) but sometimes is being cut. That's a bit disappointing to say the least ;-(
What exactly is going on here?

Here's a short video where the random cutting of the lowest note happens about every second time...

Watch on youtube.com


The NS2 definitely had "lowest note priority", so a sustained bass note was NEVER cut - which can sound embarrassing when playing left hand bass... Now this happens often, especially when playing arpeggios with a string sound in the right hand.

I hope this issue will be addressed.

Alex

Hi, i have had the same trouble, just roll back to 1.36 so far. See if you would have problems with it.

1.46 is still too buggy.Will be waiting for stable update.

Waiting for this also! My choice is upgrade to 1.46 and lose polyphony, or stick with 1.40 and get the occasional instance of the out of pitch samples bug that is fixed in 1.44. Sticking with 1.40 at the moment....
