[2594] Compressor Testing

Date: July 26th, 2019 | Comments : none | Categories: DIY.

I asked the manufacturer of my audio analyzer instrument to modify one of their plugins to be able to measure compression. They did so, and it works really great, so I am planning on doing some tests on various guitar compressors.

In my first trial run of the compressor test setup, I learned 3 things:

  1. My Empress Compressor seems to be broken;
  2. The LM3080 based compressor is not as noisy as I anticipated;
  3. Opto-coupler compressors do not react linearly.

I’ll have an article about the compression results in the near future.
