Do you mean the way the settings work? It's definitely a little different than most...
I'm going to bed, but quick question: is "AUTO" auto-release, or auto-attack and release? Or is it auto-threshold too? When I switch it off at strong settings, I hear a big change in gain, and distortion/compression artefacts - switch it back on, gone!
No, I was joking, just saying I may be the only one liking it so much
Auto is another world. In the hw manual it is called an automatic atk and rls management, but the circuits actually change more than that. It switches from peak to rms, too.
If you look at the manual for the hw you'll see how vague the specs are.
Who used the hw knows how it is a too-fast unit, real fun for some uses. The follwing products got about one half of those speed ranges.
Reading now...kind of cool, reading a hardware manual to understand my software!
I didn't realize the dbx was this program-dependant. This explains why sometimes it seems like the compressor's attack/release has changed because, well, it has.
But to be clear: adjusting the attack/release with "AUTO" on does nothing, right? I know on some compressors, it affects the time of the auto-release.
