    Running a Macbook Pro, 2.2 gig 4 gig memory, Leopard OS, latest version of B4. Single notes sound fine, anymore than two notes produces ghastly distortion. Using FireOne Audio interface. any suggestions?

    distortion B4-II

    I tried increasing the latency and the results were the same. I should note that I realize the sound is not so much distortion as more of an artifact, maybe aliasing, the sound is a whooshing artifact that is added to anything more than one note at a time.

    Distortion Question

    I too had a problem with distortion when I first tried the program. Try turning off all of the "drive". It seems that the programmers were a bit heavy handed when they added the "drive" parameter to almost all of the sounds.
    Hope this helps.
