Just had a breakthrough on what compressor attack and release really mean

Was playing around with this compression visualizer https://codepen.io/animalsnacks/full/VRweeb and saw the waveform changing in ways that didn't fit with my understanding of attack and release. Did some research on it for the millionth time and kept reading that attack is the time it takes for the compressor to kick in after crossing the threshold, and release is the time it takes to let go of the compression after it drops below the threshold. If this was true, then why was the waveform changing in response to attack and release settings when far from threshold crossings?

Well, it's because that standard explanation is wrong! The correct answer is that attack controls how quickly gain reduction increases, and release controls how quickly gain reduction decreases (ELI5: how fast the needle moves left and how fast it moves right). So that means ANY time the gain reduction changes, attack or release is having an effect. It's not just when crossing the threshold!

The time in ms on the knob is also not the "time to kick in" or "time to turn off." It's the time to change gain reduction (from 0 to a fixed target, or vice versa) by ~2/3rds. See https://www.attackmagazine.com/features/columns/gregory-scott-demolishing-the-myths-of-compression/

Now when I watch the gain reduction needle move it seems so obvious. Kinda pissed that most explanations led me astray.

P.S. If you know a bit about electrical circuits, attack and release are adjusting the time constants ( Ο„ =Resistance*Capacitance) of their respective discharging capacitor circuits via their potentiometers, which adjust resistance. The time constant is defined as the time to charge or discharge 63.2% of the circuit's final or starting charge, respectively.

For the love of god, somebody explain when a compressor should be used.

I always see compressors on individual channels, see them in master busses, see them in return channels, spent years making music and still cannot wrap my dumb head around when and how to properly use them.

Why use it on a channel and then use it again on the master channel? I feel like I should have this figured out by now. It’s the biggest brain fart of my music career and I want to resolve it.

The Logic Compressor is one of the best in the game.

Ok, so if you geek out on compression and compressors as I do, I REALLY think you are going to love this video.
I was sitting and contemplating what content to make and it came over me that EVERYONE does a video on how to compress something, but what about a video on the character of the compressors themselves? As in the saturation and Harmonic Distortion.

I was amazed at the attention to detail the LPX devs took to make these stock compressors the way they... anyways without further ado..

I made an user friendly Compressor that everyone can use, even complete newbie, download link in the post, it's FREE :)

Hello Folks!!!

I know compressor is something hard to understand, and i see a lot of question on reddit and forums, and i always feel that even with good explanation or tutorials, people at the end feel like:

"ok i've understood the idea, but when i have to do something, how can i understand how should i setup attack, release, knee etc etc"

And the best reply you get is "Use your ears" and you think "F**k"

That's why i've decided to make a compressor with patcher that can be used on Fl Studio, to help people to take their decision without too much knowledge, but with a different approach, feelings.

I made a video to explain how does it work, but i can't post on this subreddit due to "self-promoting" restriction, anyway till i enjoy to share it with this community too, here you can find the fst Download link

I hope this compressor will help you in your workflow, and finally will give you a proper tool you can use without turning up knob hoping for the best

Small simple air compressor for filling my bike tires?

Looking for an electric air compressor that will let me top up my tires before I ride. Preferably I would like to be able to configure a pressure and let the machine do the rest, but that is not a hard requirement. I ride a road bike so it will need to get up to high pressures, I think 120 psi is more than enough.
Budget isn't too much if a concern, if it is a quality product I'll pay for it

What’s the best compressor on a budget?

Hi all! I’m not a bass player, but my youngest brother is. My girlfriend and I want to give him a pedal for his birthday, and thought a compressor would be a nice first. So my question is, what’s the best bass compressor with a reasonable price tag?

(Or would you recommend another type of pedal to start out with? He mainly plays funk, alt-rock, etc.; not too heavy on the distortion)

NB: I live in the Netherlands, so I probably won’t be able to get my hands on boutique American-made pedals.

Compressor Machine Considerations

It's time to upgrade from my freezer bowl machine (which was itself a wonderful upgrade from a salt and ice machine several years ago). I'm looking at countertop compressor machines, of course, and wanted to make sure I was considering everything I need to consider. I just make ice cream for family and friends who come to the house but lately have found myself wanting to pack pints to share (or, if I listen to that voice deep down, maybe even sell a few pints locally someday). That's pretty impractical with a freezer bucket that can only do 2-3 pints a day.

I'd prefer 2 quarts, though I suppose an advantage to a compressor is making multiple batches back-to-back so 1.5 would probably be fine. Do they come with multiple speed settings so you can change the density/fluffiness of your ice cream? Any brands to focus on or avoid? Whynter seems to be a brand of choice, as does the ever-popular Cuisinart. I'd like to spend less than $350, which doesn't seem to be much of an issue, but willing to look a little higher if it's got extra features.

$1,300.00 to replace a fridge compressor? Really? (Rant + ask)

My fridge is pretty much the most basic fridge you can buy. I've looked up the price of an OEM replacement and it's cheap.

The process to replace is simple enough. I'm pretty handy and I could do it myself in a couple of hours if I had the tools (and it weren't illegal for me to handle the freon).

This must be a scam. The dude looked at my fridge maybe 90 seconds before he told me this. Does anybody know of a reasonable company or repair person? I hate to throw out a nearly new fridge.

Compressors: Worth It?

So I think I’ve asked this before, but are compressor pedals really worth it? I know part of it’s up to preference, but as far as recording and/or live music goes, are they useful enough to warrant the money (even if they don’t cost much)? I tend to really love dynamics with my pedals, and from what I understand compressors take away those dynamics. Is that true? Should I invest in one?

What makes a compressor pedal better than one that it's better than?

Idk anything about compressors except, in a very general way, what they are used for. I've never had or used one. I'd get one right now if money weren't an issue (I know there's cheaper pedals, I'm super poor, so still...) because they sound cool. Cool, as in, I like what they do based on reading.

So how does one say which are better?

Like that Keely 4knob that sometimes has an extra switch (i think....& I think it's in later models.....I don't even know which one is the coveted one, they just say Keely 4 knob), seems to be a classic that is universally coveted. What about it makes it so? For a boutique classic, they aren't expensive used.

Genuinely asked from ignorance, I'm not sarcastically trying to make a point or whatever. Just in case it seemed that way.

WTTF : Compressor, EBow - Other? WTT : Joyo Amp Sims, Utter Stutter, UV300 w/ Slow Mod, Clones (25th Red Llama, Bearfoot, Pladask etc.) + More

If this post looks familiar I posted this a little while ago but we're trying again! Initially I was looking for a Hall Of Fame 2 but I didn't have much luck. I have been interested in getting a decent compressor and wanted to mess around with an EBow again (I have had a few over the years and end up trading or selling them for some reason?)

PICS!

I have up for grabs :

-Behringer UV300 Vibrato with slow/stock switch (Traded)

-Behringer TU300 Tuner

-Joyo AC Tone

-Joyo American Sound

-Mooer Triangle Buff

-Ohnoho Utter Stutter (feeler)

**Clones I built

-OmniCabSim clone

-Clari(not) clone w/ cool LFO mod

-Pladask Workshop Delay (I suspect it was a design from a pedal building event?)

-25th Anniversary Red Llama clone

-Sea Blue EQ clone (Modded to have mids)

-Blueberry Bass Overdrive clone

-Barbershop Overdrive Clone (not sure which version) I forgot to list before. One of my earlier builds! Need to tidy it up but it functions.

-Probably others I forgot to list

I am happy to demo any and all pedals for you!

If you want me to build something else please let me know. There are quite a few options out there but I might have to order parts depending on what it is.

I would also consider other stuff - reverbs, delays, phaser/chorus/vibrato type pedals. I’m pretty open I guess!

Thanks!
