The release property of the DynamicsCompressorNode interface Is a k-rate AudioParam representing the amount of time, in seconds, required to increase the gain by 10 dB. It defines how quick the signal is adapted when its volume is reduced.

The release property's default value is 0.25 and it can be set between 0 and 1.


An AudioParam.

Note: Though the AudioParam returned is read-only, the value it represents is not.


const audioCtx = new AudioContext();
const compressor = audioCtx.createDynamicsCompressor();
compressor.release.value = 0.25;

See BaseAudioContext.createDynamicsCompressor() for more complete example code.
