SAFE SOUND AUDIO dynamics toolbox /// doundfiles

I just played around with the new dynamics toolbox and have some 256k mp3s to share.

Signal chain on everything: FF800 DA -> dynamics toolbox with Jansen transormers -> 1073DPD AD (no trannies, just the AD)

"Again" is a little duet, me on fluegelhorn and Dominic Miller on nylon string (GR about 3dB / dynamic mode / auto release / med slow attack)

"Bumping Into Pleasure" is just the outro of a tune, a bit more percussive (GR about 3-4dB / dynamic mode / med fast release / med attack).

Then there are two single tracks (no EQ, no reverb),

- 5 string double bass through U47 (peakride mode / GR 5dB med slow attack), it´s the middle of a tune with some leackage
- a bit of male vocal (3-4dB GR / peakride mode / med attack).

I didn´t use the limiter or the sidechain on any of the examples.

One thing that´s a little annoying: this box doesn´t have a power switch. At all.

Just for comparison: Vocal and Bass compressed with Tube-Tech CL1b. Not scientifically matched, though...

What was the amount of dry/wet signal mixed with the blend knob?

It´s all 100% wet, so no parallel compression. I thought that way the clips are more meaningful because you only hear the box.

For me the blend function would be "nice to have", but often I want to change the ratio of uncompressed to compressed signal during a tune which means I have to automate busses anyway and use the compressor 100% wet.

Did you use the sweepable sidechain on "Bumping into Pleasure" ?

No. But it´s very effective, almost kicking in too hard for my taste.

I don´t have a drum sub mix here right now so I just send a bit of "John Mayer Trio Try!" through it. Obviously this is totally overcompressed and pumping now, but maybe you can hear how the box reacts. I wanted to make it obvious...

1. just the record
2. 6dB of gain reduction (with very little limiting), med attack, med fast release, 100% wet
3. as above but 10dB GR blended in 50/50
