Set Compression all of the way down (1:1) for no compression and use the Gain control as a boost. Set Compression all of the way up for an above-Threshold, hard-knee limiter. There is a certain figure that just sounds good as far as compression goes, and that's 125 dB/second. With feed-forward compressors that use this type of true-RMS detector you use a single time-constant parameter.
The timing capacitor gives you attack and release times that are adaptive to your playing level or the signal input to the compressor. Bottom line: Attack and Release times vary on program content. Attack times are, generally speaking, about 100 times faster than release times.
Attack Time: typically 15ms for 10dB, 5ms for 20dB, 3ms for 30dB Release Time: typically 8ms for 1dB, 40ms for 5dB, 80ms for 10dB, 160ms for 20dB, 240ms for 30dB Tone Control and Blend? You don't need a tone control or a blend control on a compressor! In fact, in Keeley's opinion it's not a good idea. If you want a blend control, you are undoing your compressor.Instead, set the Threshold high and only let peaks be processed and then set the Compression Ratio to 2:1 or 4:1. It has tone for days, and there is no need to add treble response back into the mix. Its ultra slick, feed-forward compression design helps maintain high-end treble response like no other. Lastly, Tone Controls and Blend Controls only add noise in a compressor.
Why add noise to a compressor circuit? Input Impedance 1 Meg ohm. Output Voltage Gain: +30dB Boost. Total Harmonic Distortion: 0.1%.
