I would like to lower the threshold of the omx.comp to less than -36 dB? Any ideas how to do this? The patch only allows for min of -38 dB, and I need it to be -80 dB for a patch Im working on.
so why don't you just put [*~ 128] before the compressor object and [/~ 128] after it?
it would make the signal going into compressor 42dB hotter + the 38dB threshold set in compressor would make the 80dB together. (because the requested 80dB minus the available 38dB is 42dB and 42dB = 7x 6dB and and each 6dB is 2x gain and 2x2x2x2x2x2x2 = 128)
it should not be clipping, while signal path is not processed in fixed point, but floating point...
