I never worry about this before now but I'm having a slight "hiatus" so while I've
How come many plugins which read in vu metering Have hugely
different readings fed with same signal levels?
Examples I can think
of: Softtube tube tech compresser with a standard Drum sample trimed signal..
This reads vu and typical with quite heavy trimming In signal flickers below
"0" Switch to something different, same signal But waves Kramer pie compresser
needles Are maxed out....
And to lead to a different subject....
Nebula, I'm demoing lite, Using Boeing 747 compresser and I thought Default
metering is vu, nowhere near hot, about -16 with the Same level trimmed signal
which is why also with this program which I'm Using to
demo... There's hardly ever ANY compression even With high ration up to 1:9 and
really low thresholds -16 as an example mid fast attacks and pretty slow Releases..... Is it also the case with this plugin that's not very Sensitive
like others mentioned u have To incorporate huge input boosts?
typical the sequence: set ur compresser and then input boost(nebula) Or input
boost and set the compresser then??
