Hi,

Just got my copy of the Soniformer and as I was testing,reading and playing with it, I can't seem to understand the 'fluffy' thing.

So what does it do ?

The only thing I could find in the help/manual is :

"The "Fluffy" control button disables or enables default "fluffy" behavior.  In the "Normal" mode Soniformer compresses/expands in a more common and predictable way."

Anyone ?

Stevie


Actually, this is hard to describe.  From math side, the gain reduction function is squared.

During compression this creates a slight peak right after the signal reaches the threshold level.  Not that this is actually a peak or negative gain reduction, but a slight gain reduction 'suspend' after which the gain reduction is raised relatively swiftly.


Ok thx !

I think I understand that ;-)

As I read this ,there is a slight non-change in gainreduction right after the signal hits it the threshold point.

So .....do the attack & release times you set alter this behaviour ?Change the time to come out of this 'suspend' mode ?

And how does it react when using it on an expansion-ratio ?

Just curious ;-)

Stevie


with expansion, things are pretty the same - it suspends for a moment, and then increases the volume (or something like that).

Attack and Release don't directly alter this behaviour.


Aleksey, you said "During compression this creates a slight peak right after the signal reaches the threshold level.  Not that this is actually a peak or negative gain reduction, but a slight gain reduction 'suspend' after which the gain reduction is raised relatively swiftly."

So we're talking about the detector then ?  This actually affects the attack 'shape' it sounds like and so would give a slightly different 'character' to the compressor?  I need to listen for that better...


This mode does not affect detector - only compressor part.  This affects the shape of compression transfer function.

Thanks Aleksey...that's interesting.

Then instead of having a typical knee Fluffy gives Soniformers Transfer curve a kind of peak or bump right at the threshold where mild gain reduction occurs followed by a more aggressive gain reduction once the signal exceeds the fluffy zone.

A typical knee would extend a bit below the threshold but Fluffy only has an effect above the Threshold so it's kind of half a knee.  Is that almost right ?

Thanx


hehe...sorry - Christmas present to myself this year - understanding Fluffy! :)

Yes, this is very close (i.e. probably this is close to a kind of knee).
