Bass amps: Behind-the-scenes settings of Spectracomp

Question

Can you provide me some detailed info on settings, like whether I dial in Threshold while the ratio is fixed, or vice versa, then ratio settings etc?

Answer

Behind the Spectracomp knob, you basically have a multiband compressor with individual threshold, gain, ratio, attack and release for each band. Depending on where the knob is set, a great deal of parameters are moving behind the scenes - with only some of them in a linear fashion - in relation to eachother.

The mapping of the parameters behind the scenes, is a result of many hours of listening tests, and to that end, we consider the mapping a "secret ingredient", of the amps, so we unfortunately cannot provide any further documentation on the 'behind-the-scenes' settings.
