Dynamics (Compressor, Expander)

HOLOPHONIX integrates a multichannel equalizer available every audio objects (sources, direct-routings, spatialization algorithm buses, reverbs, speakers, as well as on the LFE and the monitoring buses).

General Parameters

The Dynamics includes:

  • A global Bypass function that disables the dynamics,
  • An compressor/expander visualization,
  • Copy and Paste functions,
  • A Reset option to reset the dynamics settings simultaneously.

Make Up Gain

The Make Up Gain adjusts the general Dynamics level between −40 dB and +40 dB. It can be used to balance any global level change caused by the filters.

Attack

The attack parameter sets the time take by the gain reduction to reach its target value. It ranges from 0.01 ms to 3000 ms (3 sec)

Release

The release is the time taken by the gain reduction to go back to no gain reduction. It ranges from 0.01 ms to 5000 ms (5 sec)

Lookahead

The lookahead time allows to anticipate peaks by applying the gain reduction to the delayed signal.

important

HOLOPHONIX is designed mainly to work live, with minimal global latency allways in our mind. Therfore, the lookahead delay is only applied to the selected channel (source, bus, speaker...). If you need to keep multiple channels in perfect synchronisation, you can apply the same lookahead delay to them, or use the DELAY

Compressor

Compressor Threshold

The threshold sets the level at which the gain reduction starts.

Compressor Ratio

The ratio sets the quantity of gain reduction to be applied when the signal is above the threshold. When set to 1, no gain reduction will be applied.

Expander

Expander Threshold

The threshold sets the level under which the gain reduction is applied.

Expander Ratio

The ratio sets the quantity of gain reduction to be applied when the signal is under the threshold. When set to 1, no gain reduction will be applied.
