  • Adjustable pressure (a mix of attack/ratio)
  • Adjustable release1 , the over all release time
  • Adjustable release2 , controls the “overload” portion of release1 where fast envelope moves will be suppressed
  • Adjustable output , to compensate gain changes with clip indicator
  • Soft/Hard mode button, ‘Soft’ mode will polish the envelope curve to minimize artifacts
  • Low Punch mode button, control an allpass filter centered around 200hz
  • Stereo Link mode button to preserve stereo field
  • Stereo link quality button normal/HQ
  • The two Stereo mode buttons will be greyed out when processing a mono signal
