Is there a way to fix a problem with Aparillo FX turning off during gradual tempo changes in LPX(catalina i7 intel). During fixed tempo, everything is ok, but as soon as the tempo starts changing, reverb, delay, & i imagine that all time-sensitive effects stop feeding into the synthesizer and the output of the synthesizer becomes plain.

Please advise if there is a way to fix this.

Thank you.

edit: playing in Komplete Kontrol, because the standalone plugin does not habe the presets....

Hi soundOCD,

unfortunately, there is a lot of things to do when the tempo changes. It's a big action because a lot of internal parameters depend on the tempo and there is a lot of calculation involved when the tempo changes. So there is no way of getting around the fact that there will be problems if an effect is currently active when changing the bpm. Every effect which is temposynced has some memory buffer and (for example all loopers, delays and reverbs) will need some amount of time when tempo change. Which means the only way to reduce this is to only assign effects in Aparillo, which you really need. What you could also try is to de/increase the audio buffer size and see if it makes any difference. The glitches should not happen when bouncing btw.

Really sorry for not having better news for you!
