    Running Replika XT as an insert effect on a channel. I'm trying to do ping-pong echoes in diffuse mode. There seem to be a large number of "sweet spots" where there is a quiet but notable sustaining wash that either stays there near infinitely, or at least takes a long time to disappear.

    Some settings that cause this for me:

    Mode: Diffusion
    Density: Dense (although it's happened on Sparse as well)
    Amount: 25%
    Size: 6.0
    Movement: (doesn't seem to matter)

    Single/Dual: Single
    Mix: 75/25
    Straight 1/4 note echoes

    Feedback: 0 (!!)
    Standard/PingPong: PingPong

    The key settings seem to be Diffusion Amount, and Size. Unfortunately, the sweet spot for Amount seems to be right around that medium area mid-way between 0% and 50%... right where I want to adjust.

    Right now I'm running some solo instruments through it, and when I hit stop, I hear just a couple of diffuse echoes (as intended), then a "fog" of tone that I do not want, and won't go away.

    Can anyone duplicate this? I'd love to get rid of it, since it happens right about where I want the settings to be. Any workarounds?

    Thanks...

    Anyone who can either confirm the behavior, or explicitly *not* have the problem?
