omx.comp~ expander questions

    Dec 27 2008 | 6:30 pm
    In [omx.comp~] you can enable and set the threshold for the downward expander function, and the reference manual says it has a 2:1 ratio. Does it use the attack and release times from the compression stage, or is it merely on/off based on threshold? There aren't any separate controls for those times. Is there any way to change the ratio on the expander? Thanks.

      you'll find all that in the help file (subpatcher).

      Maybe I'm looking in the wrong subpatcher (I think I've looked in them all, including the reference file), but I don't find all that in the help file. However, looking in the flow diagram subpatcher, I see that AGC comes after the Downward Expander, so I guess that answers my question--you can't affect the Downward Expander.
