Default How to break ReaXcomp (FIXED)

Yoh,

this breaks a compressor band so that only the autogain is still working:

1. Check on autogain
2. Check on Program release
3. Check on Feedback
4. Put some audio through it
5. Turn down threshold until the compressor has something to do
6. AND NOW: turn ratio to 0.10 and then increase it until it breaks

Result: This bands compressor doesn't work anymore, only autogain is still alive.

The easy way to confirm is to load this preset and increase ratio (with some audio running through ReaXcomp):

Warning: When you do this you better have a limiter at the end of the chain and reduce the listening volume!

Confirmed (5.18pre1). This also breaks other plugins (for example Voxengo Elephant inserted on Master).

Of course, using expansion and a feedback detector will blow up the world, everybody knows that
