I’m absolutely familiar with what audio compression is, and I need some light vocal compression on a video I’m editing. Please don’t suggest that I need “Gain”, or “Normalise”. I don’t.
I’m having the exact problem mentioned here: Compressor ist not working at 18.07
Which is, that the only control on the filter that seems to have any effect is the makeup gain. No matter how low I set the threshold or how high I set the ratio, I can’t get the gain reduction meter to move, and I don’t hear any compression of the actual audio.
Am I doing something wrong, and can I help with troubleshooting?
I’m running Shotcut version 20.09.13 on Windows 10.
