im confused.com slightly. when im using a compressor and i got it set up for just maybe a few db of reductions at say 2:1 ratio… if i then keep everything the same but change it to 10:1 the db reduction goes to 0… i thought the higher the ration the more compression…?
I’m not sure but if I had to guess I’d say that changing ratio changes Knee slop as well, so with very little gain reduction at 4:1, changing to 10:1 produces no reduction, because of the gentler slope.
Instead of worrying about the gain reduction just LISTEN to what its doing to the sound. For example if i put a compressor on something and it made it sound amazing do you rally think im gonna sit there and worry about GR lol?
