I hope you're all doing well and still find the time to be creative and experiment with modular synthesis.
Just wanted to share this little patch I've made to create my own compressor. It is a very versatile and flexible compressor patch with wide room for experimentation.
The cables are color coded as follows:
- red : audio
- blue : envelope
- black : gate
- orange : constant
Parameters to experiment with are certainly the release time of the envelope follower in the gain detection stage, attack and release times of the envelope generator and switching between linear and exponential reponse in the amplifier, but this is of course not the end of the line. Please feel free to download the patch, play with it and share your experiences with it.
This is just a mono patch, but it can easily be extended for stereo compression.
Best regards and stay safe and creative!
