2.1.1. Presets


The compressor’s presets combo-box contains a collection of basic presets, one for each combination of loudness type and latency configuration. The low-latency presets introduce minimal delay, while the look-ahead presets introduce more delay in exchange for the ability to preemptively respond to the source signal.

See look-ahead for an understanding of how delay compensation works in the plug-in.

When switching between presets, your source range and target range won’t be modified. This is done to make it easier to flip through different compressor presets after you’ve configured the range settings. Note that peak modes have their own units scale and as a result they use a separate source and target range; the sliders for these settings are swapped into view automatically when switching between loudness modes.

You can configure whether or not to load preset visuals when switching between presets, and you can switch between loading dark or light themes through the prefer dark themes parameter. These settings are visual only, they don’t have any impact on the audio behavior of the compressor.

Currently, the following presets are available (“Full Reset” restores all default parameter values):
