Support for percentage values in native fx's dB fields


maybe it would be quite handy, if Renoise’s fx like the gainer device, send device, compressors, maximizer and also pre/post faders had support for percentage values in dB fields.

So if you enter “130%” in the value field of the Gain slider, it would convert it to dB using this formula:

Distortion factor k (THD)


Distortion attenuation a


So 130% (k) would be converted to 2.278867 dB, since the entered string contained a “%” symbol.

Ok, this is not about harmonic distortion, but simply an auditive percentage->decibel conversion. I think the formula above is correct for that purpose. But you will know better of course.
