I really like the sounds I can get with extreme distortion and compression. However like many things Elektron, those effect blocks have familiar parameters that don’t give expected results.
For example I wanted to have a scene where I could switch from full on distortion, to not so much distortion. So I set the scene to drop the distortion down, then because of the loss of volume, I went to the compressor and tried every possible setting, and it just didn’t work. I tried setting the mix to zero - so no compession, and then tried to raise the makeup gain to make up for what the low distortion lost in volume - nope, this added distortion that wasn’t previously there? Almost every setting for the compressor would make sense if the compressor was before the distortion, but the manual says it is after the distortion. ???
A simple scene to have either a “ton” or “none” distortion, should be easy, but I have not gotten this simple thing to work where the volume of each scene is the roughly the same.
Does anyone have any experience with this mystery?
