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
