Hi, was quite excited for Dubler and am just testing it. Unfortunately so far it has been a pretty disappointing experience and the software feels quite buggy.
I’m running Win10 Pro with Ableton 10.1. and have set up everything correctly - in general it works as expected
Every now and then (every 20-30 seconds) I get lingering notes where a “Note Off” doesn’t seem to get sent by Dubler. Have to manually do a Midi Reset in Ableton.
Throughout the testing Dubler stopped working several times. Just out of nowhere. The Dubler software stills shows Mic input data but doesn’t send Midi to Ableton anymore. Have to restart Dubler.
Not a real bug but the super sensible pitch sensitivity makes it difficult to use for me at the moment. I have decent skills singing correct pitch and still I get a small couple of super short passing notes at the start of every note. Also whenever I get too flat or sharp Dubler rapidly switches between the two adjacent notes which sounds like a trap hihat and definitely needs to be smoothed out.
I understand that look-ahead is not possible so Dubler can not distinguish unwanted/short from wanted notes. But I tried changing “Input Sensitivity” and “Stickiness” and although there is a slight difference (not a big one though) it doesn’t really help with the issue. Maybe some kind of adjustable treshhold for note length would help here, so super short notes are filtered at the expense of a little latency.
Using Dubler right now means a lot of manual editing to remove those short notes and if sounds have a clear attack it’s just no fun using it due to constant audible mis-triggering.
If you want to re-create my problems, just put the basic Operator (sine) patch on a midi track in Ableton. I work in a quiet place using headphones without any background noise.
EDIT: Another thing: Just tried out the Midi CC and also it doesn’t make sense at all to be honest. Maybe i have the ‘wrong’ voice or am missing something setup-wise (have not seen any training for that)… but the CC control is super unreliable. I’d expect to sing “AAAA” and have the mapped controller respond according to the volume of my “Aaah” - Not happening. It just jumps around somewhere in the middle and does not react at all to volume. Even when I stop the value doesn’t go back to zero but stays in the middle or at max instead.
Obviously there must be something seriously wrong with my settings here.
Please let me know what I can do to get rid of those issues.
