Fixed it current snapshot. It was easy.

I've made the follower have a variable response related to the attack
time, which I think give a more natural response and seems to work better
on drums. New code in snapshot:

However I dont trust my own ears on compressors, so if people could try
this new version (SC1 only) and report back wether its better for
percussion and still OK on non percussive material that would be great.

Its still not ideal for percussion (as its RMS), but it should be more
useful now.
