Hello, I have strange Pink2 channel strip behaviour at top frequencies when compressor is enabled. I've created ticket named "#1614 Pink 2 strip strange compressor artefacts" and applied screenshots and mp3 files.

After 3 days I got a replay "Help us help you (read before submit a support ticket) an provide us more precise information including screen capture from problematic plug-ins."

But I've already provided all information. I can duplicate it here. Now ticket was closed. Please tell me what is this?

Provide a screen shot with your Pink settings so we can try to replicate.

These HF-articacts orrus when gain reduction is applied with any settings of compressor (HP sidechain, Pink2 mode on, knee types). With no gain reduction or with insane mode ON - there's no artifacts

OK ... I'll look to test your settings later today ... However ... INSANE mode usually needs to be ON as far as I know.

Yes, but it is so CPU hungry. I can turn it on to render the project but it is not so comfortable to toggle this setting on each instance of plugin over every time I need to render. Maybe you should implement option to select render and playback quality?

With the settings you've provided ... here are screen shots from PluginDoc analyzer.

Pink-2 Harmonics.png
As can be viewed:
Frequency response is FLAT.
Harmonic content is around -100 dB

When run with INSANE mode, some harmonics drop even lower.

As to CPU consumption, not much I can say or do about that. It may be possible that AA MIGHT have further improvements, if that is even possible. I've no insider details to support that.

As I mentioned before artifacts occur only when gain reduction is applied. Please take bass I posted earlier and run it thru compressor, and you'll hear what I'm hearing
Plugin doctor is wonderful application I like very much, but how about those examples I posted earlier?

Question ... does the GUI screenshot show the settings you used on the BASS example ?

2. also ... is the Pink-OFF/mp3 file at the LEVEL you used in the actual track ?

I prefer having the exact conditions to check.

note: I'll try to check this out for you later tonite.
