Token Compressor thread

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Jul 20, 2004.

  1. Ok, I have a rack compressor that I want to use on my cover of Drown, to give the bass some punch. I know about the Ratio, but what does attack and release mean?
  2. Damn it. This should be in effects.. :humilated:
  3. Attack is how fast the signal goes from no compression to full compression after it crosses the threshold.

    Release is how fast the signal goes from full compression to no compression after the signal drops below the threshold.

    A slower attack should give you more punch.
