Dynamic Processor allows modification of signal dynamics, including compression, gating, expanding, or any other dynamics modifications. This plugin is very similar to Waveshaper.
Curve: represents dynamic range in a linear scale of 0-1 amplitude.
X axis: represents the peak level of input.
Y axis: represents target level of output.
Left Click draws lines following the cursor.
Shift + Left Click draws a straight line between the current and last point.
+/- 1dB: shifts graph line along the Y axis.
SMOOTH: smooths graph via cubic interpolation.
RESET: nukes graph and reverts it to default
INPUT: adjusts level of input gain.
OUTPUT: adjusts level of output gain.
ATTACK: adjusts how quickly the peak level rises.
RELEASE: adjusts how quickly the peak level falls.
The level of the signal is measured in peak levels, there are three modes of peak detection:
MAXIMUM: measures the maximum amplitude between the left and right channel.
AVERAGE: measures the average amplitude between the left and right channels.
UNLINKED: separately measures amplitude between the left and right channels. (The same dynamics curve and pre/post amplification is applied to both channels)
