Audible clicking when automating volume

When automating volume via CC07, I get very audible clicks. I am trying to automate some ducking on a patch to have my kick cut through, but the clicks are VERY audible.
This will be improved in the next (upcoming) firmware, with global smoothing applied to volume destinations. However it also depends if your controller sends enough CC.
MIDI doesn't handle quick modulations very well due to the insufficient number of messages per second and the low resolution (128 values).
You can make the clicks less audible by modulating slowly or with less amplitude.

Traditionally, this kind of effect is done at the audio stage (with compressor modules or pedals). Best is to run the EssenceFM output signal into some compressor FX with your kick as sidechain
