Within FMOD, I don’t expect high-quality Limiter and Compressor like professional DAW’s plugins.
I just wanted to remove or reduce peaks, but FMOD’s built-in FMOD_DSP_TYPE_LIMITER and FMOD_DSP_TYPE_COMPRESSOR didn’t seem to work properly.
Yes, they compress frequencies, but could never be used because they created annoying noises.
I know what are Transient and Attack in the sound envelope.
I know aggressive Thresholds and short Attack Times ruin the sound quality.
But those noises weren’t what I was expecting at all.
And you know, my Threshold and Attack Time settings were very subtle, and even video editing tools like Adobe Premiere could process the same audio file with much more aggressive settings without any noise issues.
In some cases, I think FMOD_DSP_TYPE_COMPRESSOR can be useful for shaping envelopes because it works with LONGER Attack times with no issues.
But I’m not making an audio editor at the moment.
I just want to play sounds loud enough without peaks.
How do I achieve that?
PS. Is it possible to add external Limiters / Compressors provided by third parties?
If so, what are those, and how do we use them?
