Subject description: Some advice needed about using the Nord rack 2
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Hello,

I am new to this forum. Drawn here by the hope that someone with abit of experience with the Nord 2 can possibly give me some simple (hopefully) advice.

I am using the Nord rack 2, at the moment, plugged into the step sequencer in cubase sx2. When I use it I mainly use it to do repetetive basslines noises. The 'problem' is there always seems to be this clicky type noise in the background to the sound, sort of before the sound, this happens when the filter is down very low and the resonance is up high. It does not seem to do this when the playing notes from a controller keyboard.

I just got this Nord 2 back from being repaired, and although what was repaired was something different, the repair people did not pick up on it, (it is perhaps a subtle noise, but once you notice it is always there, and is superfluous to the note/noise I want to make).

I hope there is some simple explanation and ther is something I can do to stop it.

Is there anyone with experince of the Nord Rack that could help. I'd appreciate it alot.

Thanks,

Oliver

welcome

I don't have a Nord Lead, but someone will probably chime in.

I'd better say, I found my solution, I knew it would be simple and I was being abit thick, switched to polyphonic rather than mono and the noise stopped, although in theory it should not be making the noise anyway in mono as I was only playing one note at a time (at 143 bpm, perhaps it is abit slow in some respects).

Having just waited months to get my Nord back from repair, I was quite keen to avoid the frustration of trying to stop this noise, without really knowing what I was doing.

This probably doesn't apply to the Nord (and it appears you solved your problem), but some synths will click when the attack time is set to zero. Examples are the Roland Jupiter 6 and ARP 2600.
