88RS compresor release time

I'm trying to set a slow release time on the compressor (3seconds) but the actual release time seems to be much much shorter than that (looking at the gain reduction meter). What's all that about then?

I don't think the meter on the 88RS measures transients very well. I know I've used the slowest release time on certain things and it definitely sounds about right (3 secs).

...also, keep in mind that if you set it all the way to \"3 secs\" you're really in auto-release mode, I get the slowest release time right before the 3 sec mark.

maybe the meter only measures above a certain threshold. It may very well be releasing 3 seconds long, but the meter only shows part of it.

Isn't it to do with the two stage release? That is, it drops off quickly initially before slowing down?

Yes I think that's what is happening. The first part of the release is fairly rapid but the second stage is actually taking longer (which doesn't show up very clearly on the meter).

Thanks guys...
