    Does anyone have a description of what the Transient and Burn buttons do on the Opto compressor model? Perhaps I’m missing it, but I couldn’t find it in the docs anywhere.

    Hi Andy,

    We will be working on more materials for DEEP Processing models, but for the time being this is straight from the developer:

    Transient switches electro-luminescence recovery (release) response characteristic in and out. This is particularly noticeable on slow and med recovery settings. As the optical devices decay in brightness, the recovery slows as GR drops due to the non-linearity of the the light source (optical memory). It provides fast recovery for initial changes in compression recovery, but slows as the GR drops creating a punchy compressor without distortion.

    Burn switches in filament recovery, where the heat build-up in the optical devices due to previous programme dependent activity causes the recovery to be super slow. This can create an interesting side effect – a hold from recovery, preventing compressors pumping unnecessarily in passages but still maintaining a reasonably fast initial recovery rate.

    Very interesting, thanks Nicola!
