In use:

Choose your sample rate version, ratio. If desired use the preamp after the compression instance.

When to use Ahead?

Ahead is an extra parameter that simply looks ahead of the audio material. Use this for either capturing transients under fastest attack (0.1ms) or use to lower envelope distortion and still have a fast attack at the same time. Do this by selecting a slower attack first, example (3ms), then adjusting the ahead to speed up reaction time. For original hardware sound, don’t use this parameter.


Graphics meter tip for n4 , regarding flickering, use a lower ledspeed found in n4’s xml, for example <LEDSPEED> 1 </LEDSPEED>.
