SubLab Sample Issue

Congrats on the release! Bought it immediately and love it! I noticed something when loading my own sub bass samples… The notes are “clicky” even though the original sample has zero click. Tried to adjust attack, etc but it doesn’t really work. Is there something we can do to make the plugin play the sample exactly as it sounds?

Another nice addition would be to have individual ADSR for Synth and Sample

Hello i experiment with SubLab since a week now and load so many bass sample in it… i never had this problem. DO you load a Sample on a preset previously loaded ? Can you try to click on NEW (for NEW patches) it will reset SubLab for a new patches creation. (otherwise Synth, X-Sub and Pitch envelope can alter your sound)
From there load your sample. (did you set the tune section if your sample is C1 you need to map in C1 and then SubLab will correctly play)

Can you bring down in the mixer Synth and X-Sub so you will only hear the sample. Otherwise you will here a clicky sub bass but it’s from the pitch envelope and it’s wanted this perc attack because 808 bass is a derivative from the 808 kick with long decay/release and pitch envelope… so bring pitch destination to 0% by default it’s 20%

If you still have a problem :
Are you agree to share a problematic sample with us ? (even if the sample itself is not clicky)
(Because there many possibilities to fix it but it depends about the nature of your sample, is it a sub sample, a bass, what kind of bass etc…)


HINT : i do think people need to experiment with sample one octave higher and let SubLab Synth and X-Sub take care of the Sub register one octave lower than sample… just a Tip from Layering Sound Design)


Hi! Thank you for responding and the tips! I originally did start from a new patch and had the sample only playing… Loaded a higher octave too. I’ll share a comparison between the original sample and the sample loaded into SubLab later tonight.


I think the Blue one Vol is “Main Volume” and affect Synth and Sample…
Otherwise you wouldn’t have a blue color in the sample section (which is the color of the volume enveloppe) Therefore a more soften curve in the sample section IN OUT would be better to fix that kind of issue for sure

Try also to soften the attack of the volume enveloppe (in synth section)
Try to filter the Clicky part of your SAMPLE (Pay attention if it’s a sub you don’t care about filtering it if it’s a Bass filter it but not too much or it will probably kill the life of your sample)

I appreciate the advice! Already tried every available option in SubLab to try and trick the sample section to not click. My original sample has no click at the front. I really just think it’s a minor bug in SubLab since every it happens on every sample I load. I’ll upload the original sample and also a recorded version through SubLab to verify the click.

Tried to upload a dropbox link of the files but I guess you can’t on this forum. Any other option to get these files uploaded?

Hey @maine207, send the dropbox link to me at and I’ll try and add it to the forum…


Hey Gavin! I emailed the dropbox link… Thank you!

I have the link @maine207 :slight_smile: I’ll have a look and get back…
