I just had a customer complain that one of my plugins makes evil sounds in Numerology when he sends it an LFO that goes outside of the min/max parameter range. The evil sounds aren’t that mysterious. I’m just baffled that a DAW will send values to a plugin outside of the specified min/max range?
Is this normal DAW behavior? All of the DAWs I have worked with in the past will clip the parameters to a given range. Is there something about this in the VST or AU standards? Or should we presume that min/max ranges won’t necessarily be respected by the DAWs, and put bounds clipping in our own parameter calculations?
