Im using this filter (fabfilter volcano 2) with a trance gate preset. I get loads of pops. How can i stop the pops?
For the most part that's just the nature of a gate like that it just changes the output volume from on to off rhythmically. If there is attack setting you could try turning the attack up a bit to allow some time for the sound to come to full volume. That might help with the "popping" sound.
I'm not hearing pops so much, it is more the amplitude (volume level) of the signal being modulated up and down as per the design of the gate.
To get rid of the pops, stop using the gate......
ok thanks i will poke the attack a little bit see what happens.
Definitely the gate
I know its the gate that causes the pop but i like the effect. Could I create the same effect in a different way?
I don't think you can and even if there is a chance of creating the same effect it will not be the same as it used to be when you used gate..
Well Ive been messing with various sliders and I worked something out. Popping caused by certain frequencies so toned down the automation on those frequencies which reduced the major popping.
Thanks for the directions guys
try adjusting the level of the threshold knob on the gate. if you have a wide dynamic range between instances where the gate is on and then turns off you will hear perceived pops. but in reality what you are hearing is just changes in volume
