For the record, I do not believe that Kevin Ward is correct on his
assumptions on the speed control(And he mixed up the various
compressor modes in his video on MB2 IIRC).  Adjusting The speed I
believe also adjusts the release as well, however the exact algorithms
for how much it adjusts attack vs release I think is variable
depending on the compressor mode.  All my own opinions of course.
