Modular Sound Design Environment


Dynamics / Distorters --- Compressor

A compressor effect.

What the node does:

The input signal is amplified (input gain) and smoothed by an envelope follower (Attack / Release). To get the gain reduction, we have to subtract the difference of the follower and the Threshold level (Thr.), when the follower is above the threshold, and multiply the result by the Ratio.


I1: Input signal 1.

I2: Input signal 2.

Sc: Side chain input.

AM: Attack modulation input [ms].

RM: Release modulation input [ms].

TM: Threshold level modulation input [dB].

RtM: Ratio modulation input.

OM: Output gain modulation input [dB].

MkM: Makeup gain modulation input [dB].

DWM: Dry/Wet modulation input.

KM: Knee size modulation input [dB].


O1: Output signal 1.

O2: Output signal 2.

OA: Modulated attack length output [ms].

OR: Modulated release length output [ms].

OT: Modulated threshold level output [dB].

ORt: Modulated ratio output.

OOut: Modulated output gain level output [dB].

OMk: Modulated makeup gain output [dB].

OKn: Modulated knee size [dB]

ODw: Modulated Dry/Wet output.

GR: Gain reduction output [dB].

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
