Like most of my programs, these will be an ever-growing collection overtime. Do to the near infinite setup possibilities, I have created this POLL to help get user input. Who better then you to help steer the direction of this collection. Pick your most desired setup. Choose a combination Attack, Release, & Ratio. (pick all three) Once your program manifests itself into reality, feel free to change your vote.
Audio Demo UPDATE 7/20/11: Updated Attack/Release accuracy. All existing customers are recommended to Download/Update.
* The 165 changed the method & usage of audio compression when released. The 165 vca design was a 1st in the industry & set the standard for countless compressor designs afterward. * A continually growing capture collection from the 165a Compressor/Limiter * Captured via Lynx conversion @ 24/96.
* 165a 2:1 – Attack Time = 2ms-12 Release Time = 5/800ms Capture Ratio = 2:1 * 165a 4:1 – Attack Time = 2ms-12 Release Time = 5/800ms Capture Ratio = 4:1 * 165a 20:1 – Attack Time = 2ms-12 Release Time = 5/800ms Capture Ratio = 20:1 * 165a LoFi – Free Download – LoFi FX compressor.
* Understanding compression is equal part science & art. For those new to compression I recommend adjusting the THRESHOLD & INPUT to set the desired amount of compression. Use your ears not your meters. Dial in the RELEASE to shape & color your sound. Fast release times can really smooth things out. It's equal part saturation & peak limiting combined. Longer release times can emphasize the attack transients. Use the MAKEUP GAIN to set your final output level. Most importantly experiment. * The 165a is an excellent Channel or Bus insert. It can be the perfect solution for anything requiring more punch & presence.
