Triple C: Specifications for the expander

Question

What are the threshold levels and ratios on the Expander and how do they work in relation to the Compressor?

Answer

The expander in the Triple-C operates independently of the compressor, and when turned on its settings are as follows (see the chart below).

The damping is equal to the negative makeup gain - 6 dB, meaning if the makeup gain is set at +12 dB, the damping will be -18 dB.
