Unintended clicking sounds

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
Hello,

I am working on my first song a number of weeks now, i am pretty happy where it is at and would almost say it is finished.

Trouble i am having, is with a beat editor arrangement (I think)

I have a Kick, Ride and closed Hi Hat.

Kick and Ride are in the same location and hi hat off set to them.

Strange thing is, when you play the beat in the BB editor, it sounds perfectly fine, when it is playing with the rest of the elements of the song there are unintended clicking/clipping noises.

If i lower the volume of the Ride and Hi Hat it reduces the unintended noise but does not eliminate it, but if i do that i almost lose all the sound of them this way and the track does not sound the way i want it to.

I have 14 channels all gone to mixer, all levels have been controlled, none of my sounds pass the -4db mark.

My question is, should i have the Ride and Hi Hat in the BB editor? Or should they be in the song editor?

And if i change their location will it eliminate my problem?
There are many reasons for noise. If you're not on the latest beta release I suggest as a first measure that you upgrade to lmms-1.2.0-rc7, which currently is more stable than 1.1.3, or wait a couple of days and try the next and final beta, rc8 which is almost done.

Otherwise we need a sample of your project to test. Make a separate copy of the project for debugging purposes and remove every part that isn't necessary to create the noise you're seeing. Also shorten it until it's really a minimal version and upload it somewhere and post a link here so we can test it.

Thanks for your reply,

I am on version 1.1.3, i will try 1.2.0rc7

I will also debug as you have explained and will upload a test file later.

Thanks again.
Ok,

I updated to the latest Beta version, the unintended noises remain.

I will attempt to master the track again and work on a debugging file as you said, see if i can eliminate the noises myself as i will need to know for the future.

Only if i am unsuccessful will i post you up a sample to work on for me.

Thanks for the offer and support.

Right, so basically it sounds like you are seeing clipping at the output. Look at the master fader in the mixer and see if the LEDs max out. You can also see the clipping in the oscilloscope (to the right of the Master Fader and Master Pitch in the Main Window. Click to activate it.
