Hi guys,

Recently I have been using some custom samples which are quite a bit louder than the default Tidal samples. I have noticed that some heavy compression / limiting is kicking in with the extra volume.

I was wondering if it is possible to disable this effect in SuperDirt?

With the previous Dirt sampler I remember there was a startup command to disable the compressor. But I haven't been able to find any info about this with the new SuperDirt implementation.

Here are details of my current setup:

  • SuperCollider (3.8)
  • SuperDirt (3.9)
  • Tidal (0.9)

Many thanks for your help!

It's not a startup option, but if you look for "dirt_monitor" in the core-synths.scd file, that's where the mixing of signals is done before output. There's a line

signal =;

and that's it. You can remove it or replace with whatever you like.
