I have some questions about the Mixbus compressors. The only (free) documentation I know about Mixbux is Mixbus_Install_QuickStart.pdf which does not have much detail on the compressors. Perhaps there is some other documentation I am not aware of?
Here are my questions. I am familiar that a compressor may have the following parameters: threshold, compression ratio, attack time, release time, make-up gain, shape of knee (maybe more?).
It would appear that the Mixbus compressor allow modification of only threshold (via slider), attack time (via rotary knob labelled "FAST SLOW"), and make-up gain (via panel activated by the tiny button). I guess (?) the compression ratio is not settable? If so what
compression ratio is used (probably different for Leveler, Compressor, Limiter)?
Also, I'm not completely sure what the difference is between Leveler and Compressor. My guess is that Leveler is based on RMS level, and Compressor on peak value.
