I'm new at using Audio Weaver and trying to understand the smoothing functions. I've attached a diagram of my system which writes to a file. Note the linear gain has a smoothing time of 1000 ms. I wasn't sure if this smoothing applies to a change in the input level or to a change in gain while the system is running. So I tried both and plotted the results using Matlab. As you can see from the 2nd plot, the red output line did not appear to take 1000 ms to reach it's new level after changing the DC output level from 2 to 1 at about 17 seconds in to the file. Nor did it appear to have any smoothing at about 9 seconds in to the file when I changed the gain from 1.0 to 1.2.
I replaced the DC source with a pulse generator and got the 2nd Matlab plot below. Is the idea that the gain goes from 1.0 when I hit run to it's setpoint of 1.2 over the smoothing time at startup only and not during other changes? Does smoothing work the same way in other blocks like Sb RMS?
Thanks in advance for any help. I'm still learning Audio Weaver so I could have messed something up.
