I just hacked up a little experiment, by making SC4
output the gain control signal in place of the right
channel and using Jaaa.

It turns out that we DONT handle this at all!

The gain control signal has energy right the way out
to the band limit (and probably aliased around it),
never mind what happens when that hits the multiplier!

Fixing this right means upsampling and adding a
lowpass filter to the control loop, then downsampling
again. Anyone have a pointer to the latest version of
that fast factor of two resampler that was posted here
kicking around?

Fixing it crude (but probably close enough) means
adding a serious LPF at a few Khz in the sidechain
just before the gain multiplier....
Note that doing this inherently limits the speed of
the attack.

The problem is that SC4 is far from the only
problematic case, I don't see ANY of the ladspa
dynamics plugins getting this right (with the possible
exception of the 'Dyson' compressor, and I am not too
sure about that one).

Regards, Dan (Who is now honour bound to propose a
patch), working on it.
