- Visualize compression using its transfer function graph and gain reduction meter.
- The mix parameter let’s you do parallel compression.
- Adjustable knee width let’s you control compressor aggression.
- Drag the transfer function pad horizontally to adjust the threshold and vertically to adjust the ratio.
