Hi folks - i've trolled around a bit - can't find anything description about compscope. I'm probably not looking in the right places...any help?

I haven't found any help or description too...

What I found out trying:
- insert compscope_src as first fx on a track you want to examine
- insert compscope as fx on the master (or after the compressor you're examining)
- mute the master, transport stop, etc...
when you start analysis from compscope_src, you'll see the waveshape (wave in results in wave out...) and fast and slow responses (in fact you'll see it drawn 3 times, to see compression build up with slower release times...)

Do not start transport... it will crash reaper... (happens to me every time I want to start/stop the compscope, out of habit I press spacebar... :()

oooh....cool. have you tried it with an external FX (hardware compressor)?? I wonder if this would work.. when I get back home I'm going to give it a try. thx !!

Not sure if it will work with outboard fx...
The signal level of the compscope_src exceeds 0dB (goes up to +6) and the compscope expects the same level. You could adjust the level going out to the hardware outputs and in from the hw inputs (-6 dB and +6 dB)
Let me know if it works...
