What is exactly happening when I engage the 100 Hz or the 200 Hz buttons?

Does it compress the region more or does it avoid it?

What is the time in milliseconds/microseconds of the RESPONSE control?

Thanks Jon

Hello Jon,

The 100hz and 200hz are internal side-chain selectors that listen for frequencies around the 100hz and 200hz in your input sound and apply the compressor more when they are present. Why? because they can "duck" to make way for a bass drum whenever there is a lot of energy at 100hz in the signal you are compressing or 200 hz to "duck out of the way of another bass instrument.

Very useful and definitely something to try out to see if it adds a special something to your mix.

Like a lot of "vintage" compressors the attack and release are working together and just labelled fast and slow as they go from reacting several milliseconds after the attack to slower to let the initial attack not get eaten up and therefore leaving the transients intact.

Hope this helps, experiment until the compressor does exactly what you want, then save it as a preset it might come in useful later in similar circumstances.

Thank you very much Nick I really love the compressor!
