Auto-perfect presets. There's no need to know anything about compressors, or even anything audio. That's prehistoric talk. Like me.
Just slap an auto perfect preset on there, and you'll be fine.

(not meant for you at all, Henrik)

Not to speculate too much, but it looks like the big Rev3 feature will be a new mode — whether it’s opto, or Brit, or some derivation thereof, is anybody’s guess. But I’m sure it’s going to be killer!

Well first of all, Rev 3.0 is eminent and will introduce Opto, which is great for vocals. I can tell you that. I kept looking at all these features, and I said, “Wow. If I try to put all these into Rev 1.0, Rev 1.0 is not gonna be out for four or five years.” So a big part of it was paring down the huge feature set we envisioned, and in doing so, we quickly ran into issues like backwards compatibility. If you introduce a feature down the line and then somebody loads an old session with a previous rev, you cannot have it break that session. You can’t have their session change. People will kill you. So we came up with this term—a general concept—called “evolutional technology”. Kind of a generic-sounding term, but it was fairly specific in what it required from us, in that you provide for all these features in such that they’re backwards compatible.
Great to see this kind of attitude.

Excellent! The only thing I miss about a Distressor is Opto mode. So stoked.

I just bought the Arousor compressor an hour ago and there's no means of downloading the software (I followed their instructions to the letter). I have confirmation, it shows in my Avid order history. No way to download it.

Why don’t you download it from EmpiricalLabs.com?

According to the confirmation, I'm supposed to download it from my Avid account (it says only Arousors used for the Avid Venue should go to the Empirical Lab site).

I'm certainly willing to give it a try. Do you have specific knowledge that this should work, or just guessing?

Thanks JSV. Actually, before going to the EL site, I checked my Avid account this morning and it was now on there (I guess Avid's IT system was a little slow last night). I'm good, and appreciate you responding.
