2254

thx

Hi

I don't see what your problem is. The threshold knob starts at +4dBu so, if set there, the max level you can get is +4dBu. The amount it is crunching is shown on the meter when set to gain reduction.

The limit side chain follows the module output so will also limit the compressor's output if you add gobs of gain make up.

The limit ratio is around 100:1 so whatever position you set the threshold knob at... that's the maximum level the limiter will let pass.

If you have the "a" version you might want to have the limiter's attack time modified... if you have the "e' you have a choice of attack times where the slow setting is probably going to be appropriate for a wider variety of applications than the "fast".

Great sounding units [when in good repair]... should serve you well!!

[PS -- 3:1 seems to have some kind of near magic for vocals in my experience... of course, YMMV].

Peace.
