Hi Christian,

If you mean values less than 0.5 in the Freqency fader on the VCS I can see why you are having pops etc.

The frequency fader on your VCS is controlling the low shelving filter (in Frequency hz) not the frequency of the reverb clouds. I'd be using a minimum of 5-20 or so in that field.

hi Sean,

thanks for taking a look

the frequency I am related is the one on samplecloud itself and not the filter

I am multiplying the frequency to 0.5 so I can have the grains playing an octave below. When I do this it starts to give pops and cracks

thanks in advance for any help
