"Ratio" is not working when using side chain compression

As the title suggests, ratio’s not doing anything when using the compressor effect in sidechain mode in FMOD Studio 2.02.14.


I have tried with the version you provided and am unable to reproduce the issue as it seems to be working on my end.

Could you please share a screenshot of how you set the compressor effect side chain?

The ratio parameter only comes into effect when the input signal’s level exceeds the set Threshold. If the Threshold is set at 0 db, which is by default and is considered very high, the ratio will not have any noticeable effect unless the signal actually reaches or exceeds this level.

If that’s the case, you could try setting the Threshold below the peak levels(0 db) of your audio signals to see if the ratio and other compressor settings have any noticeable effect.

Let me know if it helps, please don’t hesitate to ask if you have more questions.
