I am a relatively new user of Gig Performer specifically and I’m having an issue I’m struggling to figure out. As I’m new, I have just experimented with a very very simple setup - keyboard midi input, midi plugin, output.
Single notes are ok but once I start playing multiple notes, say 3 or 4, and at a higher velocity I get a clipping effect which I can see on the main out going into the red. Turning the faders down so the output doesn’t go into the red does not affect the clipping sound so it’s not happening at the output stage.
I have reduced the output volume of the plugin to see if the plugin output was overloading but even at very low levels I get the same clipping effect.
This issue isn’t specific to one plugin - it happens with all plugins of different instruments, so that rules out a specific plugin.
So, now I’m at a loss as it would seem that the midi input (the only piece of the puzzle left) is clipping which, to me, seems bizarre seeing as it’s not an audio input in the first place.
Looking at the midi input as I play, it seems that the issue is when velocity exceeds around 90.

Make screenshots (specifically from the midi ports & audio I/O tab) and maybe from your wiring view.
There are way too many possible causes for your issues, but we won’t know them, if you don’t tell us.
Machine: HP Omen i7-7700HQ, 16GB ram
OS: Windows 10
Audio interface - I believed I had ruled it out so didn’t include it but it’s the M-Audio M-Track Duo
How did I connect my audio: Output from audio interface to mixing desk
ASIO: ASIO using ASIO 4 all V2 or the M-AUDIO ASIO driver. It happens on both and also happens on windows sound not using ASIO.
Sample rate: 48000
Buffer size: This problem doesn’t change when I change the buffer size even to the highest. It is unaffected by buffer size.
Thank you. I have everything in that video covered. Additionally I have removed ASIO 4 all and am using the manufacturer’s ASIO now. The main output I referred to was the bottom right hand corner, yes, but that was ruled out anyway as the source of the clipping.
One other thing I have notiiced is that the clipping more easily occurs in the higher notes. For example, on an 88 key keyboard, playing the Dm chord, the top three distort when applying maximum velocity whereas the others do not
