Hello! In Cubase Pro 11 when using the Steinberg compressor, I notice that if I set the threshold at a very low value (say -45), the gain reduction DB (the number, not the meter) will create a value matching the peak of its meter.
But if I move up the threshold slider (say to zero), that gain reduction DB value will not change from the value from the first threshold setting.
So, in steps:
- add compressor as an insert to track
- set ratio to 3, attack 0.1, hold 0, release 24, analysis 80%, makeup 7.3, dry mix 0%
- set threshold to -45
- solo track, press space bar to review
- GR value is -25db
- move threshold to 0
- GR value remains at -25db even tho its meter shows no signal
