Testing Compresor attack and release behavour

Post by sfunk » Mon Jul 18, 2011 12:54 pm

Hi

I would like to test the attack and release behavior of some hardware and software compressors.

What is the best type of noise burst to use? White noise or a 2k sine?

i would use white noise, maybe highpass/lowpass filtered.
i did this once, and recorded the output of the plugin to other tracks for comparison.
