How Attack & Release Actually Work
I recently watched a manufacturer’s video on a new compressor that’s coming out, and once again the way Attack and Release actually function was explained incorrectly. I can’t say I was surprised because these controls get misunderstood and confused by a lot of engineers and manufacturers alike.
So I’m reposting a couple of videos I’ve created on this subject. First up is a visual way to actually see what Attack and Release do which you’ll discover is quite different from the way most people describe these controls.
This second video is a way to hear what Attack and Release do. This is what matters most if you’re going to make the most of these controls.
