Time Related Settings

Delay (47)

By introducing a delay into the signal path reflecting the attack time, a zero attack time can be produced for the dynamic processing.

Shifting the delay value from the attack time makes it possible to control the transients. A delay value inferior to the attack time value, leaves the peaks untouched by the processing.

For obvious reasons the delay introduces latency in the processing and the different delay values on every band are automatically compensated.

Note that Solera cannot be used to produce delay-based special effects.

!> Warning: Morphing between presets with different delay values produces sound artefacts.

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

Auto Delay (46)

Links the Delay (47) to the Attack (49).

Note that the latency introduced by this equals to the attack time divided by two.

Default Value: Off

Mode (48)

In order to adapt the dynamic processing for the actual signal a detector examines the incoming signal in advance. Based on how the detection is performed different results can be achieved in the dynamic processing.

Solera provides eight different detection modes:

The 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.

Default Value: Solera

Attack (49)

Sets the attack time of the processing envelope. It also controls the way the RMS value is computed from the incoming signal. Warning: The Attack setting also controls the integration time for the RMS detection.

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

Hold (50)

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.

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

Release Mode (51)

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

Default Value: Auto

Release (52)

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

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

Release Minimum (53)

Sets the minimum release value when in Advanced Mode.

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

Dynamic Factor (54)

Amplify or dim the extracted real time dynamic information.

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

Dynamic Velocity (55)

Sets the speed of variation on the dynamic information.

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