XT-LC Lookahead Compressor is a solution for very demanding compression tasks such as acoustic guitar, full mixes, and live vocals. The XT-LC’s lookahead design can work where other compressors fall short.
Threshold: The triangle indication on the wide meter arc indicates the compressor threshold.
Ratio: The ratio knob controls the strength of the compression effect.
Knee: The ‘knee’ control defines how far the signal must exceed the threshold to achieve full compression. A smaller knee setting will result in more aggressive compression.
Makeup Gain: The ‘Makeup Gain’ control allows you to apply additional gain to the output signal, to ‘make up’ for the attenuation applied by the compression.
