Ways to combat osc clickthump

Gliding the gate resulted a rounded top in the attack, no decay, and a rounded bottomed release. Click remains.

Looking into this. Thanks!

This way of thinking might help as well:


Adding a adsr multiplied by self before the glide works “pretty well”. Levels get all squished.

“What’s happening here is the rise time is quicker than a single cycle of the waveform.”

Sample the clock / gate signal with the oscillator frequency.
That way the hi freq. click is gone.
In exchange for the click you get some jitter (or better: delay), because you only sample on the positive zero edge. Although the delay is max. 1000/frequency milliseconds (e.g 17 ms on 60 Hz, which is quite much if you like to tencho).

You can eliminate the jitter by syncing the osc with the clock.
