Hi @jake.minimal and @ben.minimal , I am not sure where this comes from, but I have the weirdest of issues with this new Rift version.
I was just working on a track and put Rift onto a drum buss track. So far so good. Sometimes when I played back the project in Live, there occurred some kind of unpleasant distortion, sounding like some bit-crushing, out of the blue. If I stopped and re-started playback, the effect was gone and stayed away. I kind of thought it was due to some buffer underrun, so I ignored it more or less, as it went away again.
But, when I now export the whole track off Ableton Live (11.1.1 or current 11.5b2 Beta), it produces these distortion burps in the mixdown, at the same places all the time. It’s not on the whole track, just in certain places. Disabling Rift, or replacing it with the older 2.0.0r4 version I still had lying around, actually solves this.
I’m on Windows 11, latest updates, Live as described above, using the VST3 version of Rift 2.0.1. I can send you the two exports if needed, or the preset I created, though I assume the problem is probably hard to recreate reliably. Let me know if you need anything!
Edit: Probably not extremely relevant, but my CPU and/or RAM haven’t even nearly been maxed out, as I have a beast of a machine. Changing buffer size for my audio interface didn’t help therefore.
