How could I configure the following combination in stereo: Compressor-->Saturator?

0 votes

If I use the compressor in stereo mode, the output of the saturator is still in mono.
I know that the Saturator is supposed to take the mode, what is present at the input as a signal, so with stereo then just stereo.
Is there another possibility without replicating the Saturator (for 2 channels)?


thanks in advance,

My current solution is to replicate the Compressor only (with e.g. the Stereoizer)

Hi Knut,

We made this example and it passes a stereo signal through the Compressor and the Saturator. Could you please try it on your system and see if it works okay for you?

Hello SSC,

I can hear only a mono signal in the example.
If I set the "left" to 0, then I hear nothing, even if "right" is set to a higher value than 0.
Somehow it is processed as left only (similar to a channeler set to "left only").
Hi Knut I'm not seeing , hearing the same thing and it's working for me. Can you look at your DSP status output meters 1 and 2 and see if what you see is the same as what you hear? If you still see the same thing then what happens when you play just the Level module ignoring the comp and saturator? Does the left and right work correctly then?
Hi Pete,

yes, when I reduce "left" I see that both signals are reduced in the DSP state window. This does not happen when I select only the Compressor or only the Level Module and ignore the Saturator.
We determined that Knut is using an older version of Kyma (before the stereo Saturator was working).
