The Compressor threshold sets the level at which compression begins. When the signal is above the threshold setting, it becomes ‘eligible’ for compression. Basically, as you turn the threshold knob counterclockwise, more of the input signal becomes compressed. (If you have a ratio setting of greater than 1:1.)
