hi aleksey,

this may sound bonkers, but a feature i've been wanting from any comp for quite a while is a 'delay' parameter, to delay the onset of the attack. my desire for this is purely a creative one, to give more control when using a compressor to pump after transients.

long shot ;]

thanks,

will.


I will probably try to implement such feature in some future product, but I do not have plans to implement it in Marquis Compressor.  Thank you for your idea!

you are right, its a bad idea for marquis.

but if you ever have plans to make such a simple little pumping compressor that would be good seeing as there's nothing i know of designed for that purpose, like your innovative low freq punch/max processors.

other things/ideas id like on such a creation (dont really know how some of these would work or even be worthwhile, just brain storming really):

- the adjustable 'delay before attack' time parameter, and sustain time before release is activated, almost adsr approach, with editable attack and release slopes.

- attack and release 'tempo sync' option.

- maybe some kind of step sequencer sending on/off to comp and individual attack/release/ratio settings for each beat/transient in a bar.

- lfo attached to ratio (so that when comp is gain reducing you can add 'wobble' to the sound), syncable of course.

- smaller than 1 ratios, so expansion posible.

- 2 bandwidth controls:

a: allows you to choose which freq range triggers the threshold.

b: allows you to choose which freq range will be gain reduced/expanded.

sorry for laying my bonkers conception on you.

keep up the good work!

regards,


These ideas are not really possible to implement in a compressor since it can't use boolean logic while ADSR envelope needs it.

2a/2b are basically how de-esser works.


ah ok.

just to clarify, what i meant by 2a/2b was, say, one specified range could control another, eg. a snare fundementle in the 100-2k range could be made to only trigger compression/expansion in the 2k-20k range. so just some kind of flexible multi-band approach. whereas a de-esser is simply one static band?

i think the lfo attached to ratio is theoretically impossible as well isnt it? maybe just ability to add wobble to the envolope slopes.

i'll shut up now ;]

regards,


Actually, advanced de-essers can do that 2a/2b trick.

LFO on Ratio without some *very* clever auto makeup gain logic won't work good - you'll get volume drops here and there.
