What is a compressor?
What is dynamic range?
When you apply compression , you effectively tame the louder parts of the signal and reduce the dynamic range of the softer parts of the signal to both elements can be heard clearly and co-exist. In other words, compressors attenuate the louder parts of the signal and boost the result.
Dynamics are variations of levels within a signal normally represented by (select all that apply):
The initial high burst energy of a sound is known as?
Regardless of design, all compressor share the following parameters (check all that apply):
What does the threshold do?
A lower threshold applies reduction to more of the signal.
A higher threshold value will apply more gain reduction to the signal.
Ratio defined the amount of gain reduction applied after the signal has crossed the threshold.
If you want to beef up a sound and squash the transients quite a bit, you should set the ratio to 1:1.
Let’s say you’re compressing some drum overheads and you want to lightly compress the sound but still retain the percussive character and let the transients push through. How would you set up the attack?
What does the release function do on a compressor?
