Re: A Quadrature Power-Summed Compressor Sidechain For "The Uno Compressor"

Yes de-ess is still a thing for single sources, and Paul can tell us how much he needs to use it now versus then on program for cutting vinyl, still a growing trend. I have software de-essers that work well, but sometimes the dox 902 still wins, and if I'm purposefully smashing drums through a limit...

I don't recall any publicized application of the 'optional 1/2' resistors.

Re: A Quadrature Power-Summed Compressor Sidechain For "The Uno Compressor"

Doug what does NLC bring to the table for you that you don't get with RMS? Less distortion on low frequencies? Missed this until now. Advantage over RMS mode - less audible overshoot on things like vocals, acoustic guitars. The recovery 'hiccup' isn't audible in complex waveforms, or is at least le...

Re: A Quadrature Power-Summed Compressor Sidechain For "The Uno Compressor"

I'll add that over time I find I'm using non-linear mode the most with Pico's in pop music, acoustic Americana, etc. I rarely ever use adjustable attack/release, it's NL or RMS. Never the peak mode. I think the waveulator is a better approach for transients. I probably should have built it that way...

Re: True Phantom® from PREMA Semiconductor

Hmmm…..and then I’ll run it through some transformers to get more 3rd back in….so…transformer output mic contribution swamp this reduction? Hard to get excited on the face of it OTOH there’s a growing list of high dollar standalone phantom supplies on the market. $400 2 channel devices, etc. Hard no...
