Hi Aleksey,

I was just wondering if you changed the dry knob behavior in the latest version of Polysquasher as was hinted in the thread earlier on this page?  Like the original poster of that thread, I'm REALLY interested in Polysquasher for doing parallel compression.  However a lot of time you new a wet/dry mix less than 50/50, say with only 20% compressed signal to 80% dry.  Is this possible in v2?

Thanks!


Yes, you can set required dry/wet proportion in Polysquasher V2 - in the compressor settings window.

So with the dry knob at 100% none of the compressed signal is heard now?  In previous versions of Polysquasher I understand that at 100% dry knob it was actually a 50/50 mix, just curious if this aspect is different in the new version.

Yes, at 100% dry mix, no compression will be taking place.

When doing parallel compression with Polysquasher, I am wondering how to compare the wet/dry percent with a dB difference - i.e. what wet /dry setting would give a compressed signal 6dB lower than the dry signal?  Or 10dB lower?

Also, I am wondering when you adjust the wet/dry ratio, if you don't see any 'swing' on the graph, does that mean there is no compression taking place?

Such comparison isn't possible with the wet/dry mix control.  But the effect of the wet/dry mix is clearly seen on the gain reduction graph.

When no compression is taking place the graph will be horizontal line.  Otherwise, the wet/dry ratio change will clearly affect the graph.


Thanks Aleksey, that is very helpful.  I guess that also applies to the Crunchessor GR meter?

In Crunchessor the wet/dry mix control does not affect the GR meter.
