Isn’t a downward expander just a gate with variable attenuation, rather than on/off? I’m pretty sure the GLD has one of these on every channel.

Mark, an expander works a little bit more like a compressor–gain reduction depends on how far the signal is below threshold–while a gate applies the same gain reduction for all signals below the threshold. At least that’s how I understand them.

What the GLD currently has (v1.5) is a gate, not an expander.

Dave, if you have the time, the Editor software emulates the layout of the surface and touch screen menus quite well, so it’s worth downloading and playing around with.
