I am trying out the demo and noticed that the compression was "enhanced" noticeable when using CP2V in 176.4kHz compared to 44.1kHz. 88.2kHz was better than 44.1kHz but still not as good as 176.4kHz. The annoying popping on snare attacks decreased the higher the sample rate I went. Here are two FLAC files I made showing the difference. The 176.4kHz file is resampled back to 44.1kHz to be more compatible with most/all converters. The attack was slow and release was fast.

The plugin is 4x oversampled but is it possible to add up to at least 16x oversample to archieve better results? It is CPU intensive at 176.4kHz but the audible difference is worth it and I would definately buy it if this can be "solved".
Edit: I notice this on most compressors I try out. Waves API 2500 makes a difference and others. One that didn't really make much difference was Reapers own ReaComp even if I set it to x64 oversampling. I wish this could be solved in the VST world because right now I understand why many if not most compression loving famous engineers use hardware analog compressors.

> The attack was slow and release was fast.
If your intention is to catch the snare transients why are you using the slow attack setting?
It won't be fast enough, hence the "popping".
I am though looking into adding variable oversampling in a future update.

It is not really to catch the transient but actually to let some of the transient through without the uncontrolled pop artifacts that appear on lower sample rates. The attack is also a lot smoother when using higher sample rates. Regards.

this may sound rather profane, and I apologise for that in advance,
but how about an added "medium" setting for both the attack and release switches on the CP2V?
Somehow, I always want "medium" and never can decide what to choose instead (= usually
end up using the "slow" setting).
Best regards, Nils
I've had a few requests for that - so I'll add it and release an update very shortly.
Just finishing CS1V, SATV and IR1A updates.
