Triple C: Specifications for the expander


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


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.

Mid threshold-53 dB
High threshold-59 dB
