I'm having a lot of difficulty getting natural sounding speech using a compressor box (peak, RMS, or combo). Attacks are too loud compared to the rest of the clip, but as I tweak the knobs, I can't level this out without raising the noise floor.
Can anyone recommend a tool and/or settings that has worked for them to achieve good decompression?
I noticed in the help section reference to a "Standard Peak/RMS Compressor" that has a lot more controls, particularly referring to control of the attack/release time. But I don't see this tool in the toolbox. (Using Ver. 3.9 Build 2)
About my setup: the input signal is compressed 2:1, and I'm comparing the audio to a reference receiver that uses an SA575 compander to perform the 1:2 decompression.
Here is the decompression curve I'm using.
Thanks for any help,
