Time Related Settings

Delay (47)

Unit: ms
Value Range: 0 to 50.0 ms
Default Value: 0 ms

A delay reflecting the attack time can be introduced into the signal path in order to produce a zero attack time for the dynamic processing. Shifting the delay value from the attack time allows to control transients. A delay value inferior to the attack value lets peaks untouched by the processing.

Note that the different delay values of every band are automatically compensated. Solera can’t be used to produce delay based special effects.

!> Warning: Morphing between presets with different delay values produces sound artefacts. Of course this delay introduces latency in the processing.

Auto Delay (48)

Default Value: Off

When enabled, the delay value is linked to the attack value. Be aware that the latency introduced by this function is now equal to your attack time dived by 2.

Mode (49)

Default Value: Solera

8 different detection modes are available:

These Feed Backward modes have been inspired by vintage hardware architectures. they create a sort of auto regulation of the processing which produces a naturally beefy sound.

Attack (50)

Unit: ms
Value Range: 0 ms to 100 ms
Default Value: 0.0 ms

Sets the attack time of the processing envelop. It also controls the manner the RMS value is computed from the incoming signal.

!> Warning : The Attack setting also controls the integration time for RMS detection.

Hold (51)

Unit: ms
Value Range: 0 ms / 500 ms.
Default Value: 0 ms

This parameter is the only one in the time related settings, that is independent per dynamic processor. The compressor and the expander may have different hold time.

Used in the Expander section, this setting allows very precise gating of drum tracks. It can also be used for creative purpose on the other dynamic sections.

Release Mode (52)

Default Value: Auto

Three release modes are available for the envelop of the dynamic processing.

Release (53)

Unit: ms
Value Range: 0.67 ms / 10000.00 ms
Default Value: 500.00 ms

Sets the manual release value and the maximum release value when in Advanced Mode.

Release Minimum (54)

Unit: ms
Value Range: 0.67ms / 5000.00
Step: 0.01
Default Value: 1.30 ms

Sets the minimum release value when in Advanced Mode.

Dynamic Factor (55)

Unit: x
Value Range: 0 / 3.0
Step: variable.
Default Value: 1

Amplify or dim the extracted real time dynamic informations.

Dynamic Velocity (56)

Unit: %
Value Range: 10 / 1000
Step: 1
Default Value: 50%

Sets the speed of variation on the dynamic informations.
