How are you doing?
As for a clicking sound during sustain (damper) release in lower octaves; I have never heard of this before. I looked through all of my old e-mails to make sure that I am just not remembering a past discussion but I can't find any reference to this issue.
That being said, I tried playing notes and chords in the lower octave of my Promega 3 (v1.06) with and without the damper pedal and it is quite clean. Are you using a standard sustain pedal or the Pro Pedal unit with the continuous controller damper pedal? I am using the Pro pedal with the CC but also tried a normal footswitch and found that the release is fine.
The only thing I can think of regarding this is you may have a software version prior to v1.04. In earlier software, during the release phase of struck notes, the damper physical model affected the natural string resonance model (NSR) but not the main sound component. I suppose this could cause a clicking sound during release but I have no way of testing this since my Promega 3 has been updated.
I strongly suggest that you have your Promega 3 updated to version 1.06 and then verify that the clicking is no longer an issue.
