I purchased this compressor for transparent peak limiting but I'm still having a little bit of a hard time finding the right settings.
And yes I've read ovnilab's compressor FAQ
I've set the input so that the meter goes up about 20% with normal playing and just gets to the yellow on hard attacks.
1. I expected to notice more of a difference going between 1/20 to 1/5 ratio but I really can't. I'm assuming its just a more subtle difference than I expected?
2. Does setting the attack all the way up (6 o'clock) allow more of my natural attack to come through or does the compression kick in faster? Can't discern a difference by ear.
