I just wanted to ensure whether I use the wonderful FC-70 (= a Fairchild 670 plugin) in the right way. I found some times ago a wonderful manual (by a different manufacturer of another Fairchild plugin, I think), but I cannot find it anymore.
In this manual was written that the Threshold knob manages threshold and ratio [In the FC-70 this isn’t said in this clarity (here it is said that ratio is set by by increasing the input gain, which I don’t understand… On the other hand the it looks as Threshold also sets ratio)]. Because I wanted to use the FC-70 as a limiter with as possible minimal or no compression, my way was, to turn the threshold setting fully clockwise and adjust the amount of limiting alone through the input gain.
Is this the correct way?
Thanks in advance,
