Smoothen Bug in WAV Editor (RESOLVED)

 
The smoothen function in the WAV Editor smooths the sample into a streight line.  I thought I posted about this years ago but apparently not.  I remember in a previous version of Caustic, this worked really well, softening-off the sharpness a little on each press of the button.  But now it pretty much wipes the sample out, ilike it's set to some super-high smoothing intensity.

It's, always, done that. It's

It's, always, done that. It's for smoothing out, short, sections. Are you sure you aren't thinking of the 'smoothen' control in the waveform editor, which does exactly what you're describing?

By the manual this function

By the manual this function serves for repairing glitches in bad samples.

But you could try to smooth out a sample using an inserted low-pass filter in the "Effects" tab.

Thanks both, you'll have to excuse me, I've not used Caustic for a while.  I've been trying my best not to get too attached to it since I need pitch automation.  Resistance is futile when it comes to Caustic though, it's still my favourite DAW, something I cannot shake and forget.  It's bloody torture though, not having proper pitch automation.

Anyway, so are you saying there are two WAV Editors in Caustic?  I'm a bit confused, I just used the one called "Stand-Alone WAV Editor" that is available from the Main Menu under Tools.

Basically I just used the C-FSXR to generate a random sample, and then processed it using the Stand-Alone WAV Editor built-in to Caustic.  Best way I can explain what I was expecting is to imagine a Sawtooth wave with its sharp teeth, and by hitting the Smoothen button, it would start to smooth-off the sharpness of the teeth more and more on each press of the button.  What I am getting at used to be a very gradual process, but now it appears to be smoothing-over the sample with such intensity that it is flattening it into a streight line on the first press.

Unless I'm thinking of another program, which is possible I suppose.  Or maybe, as your post has me wondering, there is more than one WAV Editor in Caustic and I'm using the wrong one?

There's the WAV editor, which

There's the WAV editor, which is standalone, or available to the sample playback machines. And there's the waveform editor, where you can draw, or import waveforms for the subsynth and the bassline

its not a bug its expected

its not a bug its expected behaviour and its best used when you zoom in really close and select "dots" (term - samples).
And I'm talking about the one in the .wav editor.

Take care.

I didn't realise there were two WAV Editors in Caustic, or at least don't remember it being that way.  But yes, it's that editor you get when editing the Sub and Bass synths that I was thinking off.  I'm surprised the features of both editors are not merged into one with the ability to call it up from any of the current methods.

Thanks all.
