EX-1 LOUD Noise!!!

I'm using v4.4.1 with Cubase 4 and sometimes when open EX-1 it gets a very loud noise, like happen sometime ago with Plate 140...
Does anybody had this issue??

Perhaps it's latency or the sound buffers aren't being properly flushed in some instances. Although I must admit I have stopped using EX-1 since I have a better plug-in for that sort of thing now.

I had tryed with differente buffer sizes and the problem persists...
I think the problem happens when i change in the low frequence...

Make sure none of the EQ band frequency settings are not set below 20Hz, your speakers will certainly not produce any sound below that. You can disable/enable each band as required. You would expect silence but the EQ section still tries to generate a sound. I hope that helps. If you look at the default frequencies they are set to 1hz. Which is something which I find strange. Why allow control of subharmonic frequencies that can not be heard and merely only felt. But there you go.

The lowest frequency you can set the EX-1 EQ to is 20Hz; the lowest default one is 160Hz.

Do you remember the big issue with Plate 140? The loud noise?
The same appears with ex-1...
Does anybody had this issue too??

Well my version must be a mutant then, my one goes all the way down to 1Hz. I should post a picture somewhere.
:roll:

It seems to exhibit this behavouir on the initial view creates massive peaks below 20Hz when you add gain. Perhaps a localised issue with my system.

UAD-1 Manual on page 209 said:
Frequency (fc)
Knob:
Determines the center frequency to be boosted or attenuated by the Gain setting.
The available range is 20 Hertz to 20 kiloHertz. When operating at
sample rates less than 44.1kHz, the maximum frequency will be limited.
If yours can go down to 1Hz, something's wrong. What version of the software are you using? It works as expected here with 4.4.1.

Here's a screen shot of what I mean.

Note, this is only initial view and you can only use 20Hz-20Khz range thereafter. In Sony Sound Forge, it goes slightly crazy if I don't pay attention too it.

I'm running the latest driver, use an EMU 1212M on a Gigabyte Kt600 chipset with AMD Athlon 3000+ (Barton), 2.5Gb of RAM.

Looks like a nasty bug to me. You should contact UA support, if you haven't already done so.
