yes my foot is solidly on the break. It never made the noise with my old clutches.

well thats the thing, its in 6th gear and not shifting. The rpms drop for a second, the noise occurs, then the rpms go back up. As with reverse, the rpm drop and noise never happened with my old clutch. its between 35-40 where is happens the most. But i can defiantly see where that speed could be causing some clutch action to occur. I wonder if its only one of the clutch packs thats causing the issue. my guess would be the 2-4-6 clutch pack, especially if reverse is initiated on that pack. I dont know how DCT does reverse work that well.
