Something always bothered me and now that we have a forum I’m taking the opportunity to ask all of you.
Is it normal that when I load an other snare than my main one (to do layering), I can’t access to its mics ? Like, I’d like to mute the bottom mic or the rim one, but no. Sometimes I have 0 microphone that shows up, sometimes only the bottom one, for example, or the top… It seems random, I didn’t find any way to do it manually.
Of course, I’m not talking about the ambience microphones but all that concern the direct source.
Here, you can see that I deployed all the “hidden” microphones but for the second snare, the Tama Tempesta, I don’t have any microphone channels.
Here, one channel is displayed but I don’t know why this one and only this one…
Can someone help me on this issue, please ? Thanks a lot !
There was a bug reported a while back about missing mic channels but I think it was only on certain snare from certain expansion kits. I’m guessing you’re using the latest build v 188.8.131.52?
I didn’t see anything about a fix for that bug in the release notes but I think @BFD_Drew knows about it.
I have the last version (not the new update yet), but I think I have this issue since forever now… That’s not a huge problem but in a sense yes
Not forgetting of course that some snare do only have 3 channels, top, bottom and direct.
I’ve done some more looking into this tonight and it I think the problem seems to be the mixer not updating when you change snares.
I started by loading just a snare from the Big Orchestral & Marching Band, the snares in that expansion only have top, bottom and direct mic channels I went through loading a number of snares with just 3 mic channels until I got to one of the Japanese Taiko Percussion snares, they have one bottom mic, and 3 top mic channels along with the direct mic channel.
So far all is as it should be but when I reloaded one of the B.O.M.B snares I find I now have 4 mic channels, 3 top mic, one direct mic and no bottom mic, previously I had one bottom, one top and one direct mic.
So definitely a bug in there somewhere.
I get the same behavior with kicks and snares, every expansion. Before the recent updates I’d get the last of the channels, so snare bottom or kick sub etc, now I get none at all, click the arrow to expand the mics and nothing pops up. Again for both kick2-5 and snare2-5.
Would you mind writing a bug report so we can investigate this? I have just created a Bug Report section for this, so just use the guidelines and include as much detail as possible.
Do you want the report posted in this thread or elsewhere?
I’ll have a go if no one can by Sunday but am a bit busy
In the new Bug Report subform would be grand!
Heya, we’ve got a repro case for this now too. Thanks all.
Sorry I was away… Seems like this issue has been taken seriously. Thank you Steve for checking it and to the devs for taking it into consideration !
I’ve had this problem too. It’s also when you add a second kick drum as well. I have kits with 2 snares and saved them with different [Snare Top] Mono-Channel 3, [Snare Bottom] Mono channel 4) outputs. When I change the Snare 2 channel back to master, it doesn’t sound correct. I need access to those other mic channels.
