When control signal reaches threshold the compressor C1-ALPHA immediately and very fast starts to lower the signal level slowing down by exponential law. C1-ALPHA compressor is not an emulation of any hardware or software compressor. But due to its exceptional characteristics of its audible results can be compared to the following well-known compressors: Tube-Tech CL 1B (on lead vocal) and Fairchild 670(on master buss).
