Could firmware bring a compressor to the heat?

Is it possible to make the analog heat capable of real compression, through a firmware update? I know I can already use the envelope follower to mimic it, but I would like the real thing.

I know they did it for the Digitakt.

Depends if the Heat has enough processing capacity left for that feature to be added.

I am actually suprised the Heat doesn’t have it.

It’d be something eh? I’ve longed for an envelope follower on the OT using the same rationale (it has a compressor, so the tech must already be in the box, right?)

I don‘t have the heat and don’t know how its envelopes run, but what would be the difference to a dedicated compressor?
