FOCUS COMP FREE/DONATION

Post by Tim Petherick » Thu Nov 22, 2012 11:52 pm

Hello everyone,

I have released a single program compressor for everyone to download for free or donate. Like quite a few dev's i'm trying to get a hold of the gain reduction and fast attack times.

This was kind of a experiment and almost like a BETA for you guys to give me feedback. I found some interesting ways of getting faster attack times. But you need to use the correct master and sample rate settings.

So to get the faster attack times, the Rate in global needs to be low. So,use above 88.2khz and buffer at 128 because Rte has a direct relationship to the buffer/sample rate. So at 44.1, you have half the samples which is equivalent to going to 256 buffer at 88.2. This is the reason for using high sample rate and low buffer.

If you are getting faster attack times, look in the global page and the rate should be at 1.451 . You can also get this at 44.1 but you need to edit the xml . You can get faster attack times still . But you'll hear artifacts. This is not perfect. Thats why i'm giving the option to get it for free. If you donate any money will go towards getting hold of special compressors and hopefully get even better results.

About the hardware-

This is a budget optical compressor. Release times are slow , and attack times were quite close to each other and fairly slow. EDIT- ratio is 2.5:1-6:1


Please visit my website to download :D

Let me know what you think

Thanks

Tim

Hi Guy's ,

just to make sure everyone is using recommended settings.



Recomended settings are 128 buffer
88.2khz sample rate
1ms program rate

You should be getting fast attack this way

more Compressors will come after the release of the rap eq.

Thanks

Tim

it is still a question for me, why the buffersize influences the compressoraction.
does it influence the kernelswitching?

it would appreciate some insight.

is this something you have exprienced yourself when changing buffer?

It has a effect on all dynamic sampled preset's too not just compressors.

I wish I had a theory as to why it has this effect. If you mod the xml down to 64 samples you get an even quicker attack. I'm not advising anyone to start messing with the xml, just giving an example.

i never changed my buffer to lower settings, to save cpu.
i don't need realtime and my daw compensates for the latency.
i work with the long buffer (something like 8192), which nebula reverb always had in the past, all the time.

this is the first time, that i hear, that buffersettings really change the sound.

i don't really like the fact, cause now i have to experiment again.

would be great, if giancarlo could elaborate on that matter, so we know a little more, what it is about.
