TOPIC: Compressor settings quickest attack time

Compressor settings quickest attack time 7 months 3 days ago #45272

Is there a reason to limit the fastest attack time to 15msec on the miniDSP-HD?

I have many applications where I am using gain and limiting the threshold to increase the total loudness. I typically will add 12~18dB of compression, but with these settings and a 15sec attack time, I get severe clipping.

On the MiniDSP (original) the fastest attack time is 1msec. This would definitely be requested also on the "HD" version!

@Mark

I forgot if there was a reason but I believe that this algorithm needed a bit more than usual (different set of algo between the 2x4 and 2x4HD). You meant 15mS right? Not 15sec attack. :-)

Anyway, will ask engineers to see what's the reason..

yes, 15msec !

using ADI's sigma studio with their "canned" modules, the lower limit is 1msec

Hello,

I also run into problems according this high minimum attack time. The compressor compressed only the second bassdrum fully or produces clipping at the first.

My problem is reported here :
www.minidsp.com/forum/software-support/1...ressor-attack-of-1ms

Please implment minimum attack time of 1 ms in the miniDSP 2x4 HD.

Thanks

Please give us quicker attack time! Compression is essential to 80% of my TV audio (news and podcasts). Technically I wouldn't need this if you had a maximizer-type feature that could "brick wall" the output.
