The Enhancement Level parameter in the Levels section is designed to precisely control the output level of the Enhancement effects. Echoing the properties of both the Dry and Reverb level controls, it provides a range from completely OFF, when the fader is fully down, to a scale extending from -30dB to 0dB as the fader is raised.
When set to OFF, the Enhancement Level effectively mutes the entire Enhancement section, allowing for a clear comparison between the processed and unprocessed signals or for times when the enhancement effects need to be temporarily bypassed without losing their settings.
As you increase the fader from the OFF position, the Enhancement Level gradually introduces the enhancement effects into your mix. At the lower end of the scale, near -30dB, the enhancement effects are introduced subtly, adding a slight depth and texture. This subtle application can be perfect for nuanced sound shaping, where only a touch of enhancement is needed to complement the overall mix without overshadowing other elements.
Raising the Enhancement Level towards 0dB allows the enhancement effects to become more pronounced and impactful. At higher settings, these effects can significantly influence the sound, adding distinctive spatial characteristics and depth. This is especially useful when the enhancement effects are intended to play a major role in the sound design, such as in creating immersive soundscapes, adding unique dimensions to instruments, or in experimental audio production.
Thus, the Enhancement Level parameter offers crucial control over the intensity and presence of the enhancement effects. Whether seeking a subtle accentuation or a bold, transformative effect, this control allows audio professionals to fine-tune the enhancement to suit the specific requirements of their project.
