formula for "taper" of gain controls

Postby dts350z » Mon May 06, 2013 4:58 pm


I'm wondering if you'd be willing to share the formula you use in your gain bidules: -infinity to +10dB from a linear variable, with a lot of travel around zero dB?

Goofed around, googled around, it seems to be non trivial.

You should be able to get that from a plugin parameter by specifying SCALING_GAIN10 as the scaling.

dB2Linear(dB): pow(10.0, dB*0.05)
Linear2dB(Linear): 20.0*log10(Linear)
