compressor per output instead of voice/instrument
« on: January 09, 2021, 11:44:55 PM »
hi xavier,

it would be great if the compressors could act on the actual outputs, and not on the voices.

if i want to play the preenfm3 as "mpe" synth, the compressors are not so useful. if i set all the voices to output on 1-2 for example, it will still distort. from a menu standpoint i don't really know where to put it, since the mixer is set to work with those 6 voices. maybe a second page in the out section could contain the active combinations and compressor options.

Compressors are on the instruments after each voices is calculated.
I made this choice to have independent instrument and to avoid an instrument to change the volume of another one.

It always possible to change the volume and not use a compressor if you hear any distortion.

I understand that decision, it is not ideal for mpe, but it is not the normal usecase
