Compressor: how much gain reduction?
by hamkom on 2013-04-18 23:16:26.8020

In the deap-tweak window for the compressor settings I can find a meter for visualisation of gain reduction on the very right.

But I can't find a scale for the value of gain reduction. Is there a way to quantify the amount of gain reduction, for example a total peak makes 12 dB, the half 6 dB, ...?

You made a very good guess. It really is 6dB at half (a little bit below half) of the scale and 12 at (almost) full scale. The first bit of the scale is a bit more sensitive so as soon as any gain reduction happens you see it before you hear it.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
