DYNAMICS

Overview

dynamics

Keeping your levels in check was never easier

Dynamics can be used to give an aggressive oomph to your leads. Try it in Multipass for multiband processing.

Dynamics processing featuring upward and downward compression as well as expansion. Thresholds and ratio are controlled by clicking and dragging on the visualization in the upper part of the plugin interface. The visualization shows how input levels are mapped to output levels by the dynamics processing. The current input and output levels are marked in the visualizer by a moving disc.

Parameters

Low Ratio

Ratio of upwards compression or expansion below the low threshold.
