  10. Logarithmic Interpolation of Hard Knee Curve

    REW Forum
    My understanding of Logarithmic Interpolation is that you now only have to enter the start and end of your straight section of curve (say 30 6.0; and 0 80.0), and the interpolation will plot a straight line for you on the horizontal logarithmic scale. Well, I can't get it to do that. I can...
