Re: Studiospares RED10 vs Primacoustic Recoil vs Auralex MoPads?

compression anywhere between 5-10% and maybe about 65% will be fine..... outside of that, the material does not act reliably as a spring. large areas of foam become surprisingly hard to compress, especially when the load is not directly vertical... the other way to do it if your load is insufficient...

Re: Constant-gain plug-ins / DAW inserts?

can i just be pedantic rather than especially helpful...... constant gain, would seem to me to be a misnomer....

constant loudness perhaps??..... or an absolute signal level compensator????
