I'd say, a high ratio, on the order of 20: 1 or higher. Fastest attack time with a 150 ms decay. 2 to 10 DB of gain reduction during normal program content. That's your start. Make sure that channel links are switched on for stereo operation. If you have adjustable high-frequency constants that will provide some high-frequency limiting? Try 50 or 75 microseconds which is generally the reciprocal for FM preemphasis.

Ask any time. Don't feel limited.

Welcome to the world of 500 cable channels, community access TV, college and high school TV. It's a good thing. People learning by doing. No fixed formula for success. Like radio in the days before Clear Channel.
