Compression and other dynamic processing

Compression and other dynamic processing: Foundations of Digital Audio
Compression and other dynamic processing: Foundations of Digital Audio

Dynamic range compression—which is different from data compression like MP3—reduces the difference in volume between loud and soft moments in a recorded sound. Matt defines what a compressor does, and compares it to the three other common types of dynamic processors: the limiter, expander, and gate or noise gate. All of these have a parameter called threshold, which defines a specific volume level, and each behaves differently when the audio level passes the threshold.
