Threshold, ratio, and four types of dynamic processors: Digital Audio Foundations

The four types of dynamic processors—the compressor, limiter, expander, and noise gate—can be defined in terms of how they behave around their threshold and ratio parameters. Matt shows how the compressor and limiter turn down signals louder than the threshold, and the expander and gate turn down signals softer than the threshold. Of those, the compressor and expander have a subtle effect on the amplitude of the sound, while the limiter and gate have a more drastic effect.
