Compression helps boost the lowest part of the volume and lower the higher volumes. It cuts down distortion (when your meters are red) but red should be avoided in the digital world.

Compression will catch it when an artist starts yelling or singing louder in certain parts. It evens out the recording in any number of incidents. The compression is used in mastering to any volume frivolity which was missed and increases the volume without distortion.

Try to use too little compressing when recording. Too much compression can squash the life and color out of your music. It’s also good to have variation if that’s the person’s character. Threshold, Ratio, Gain, Attack, Release and Knee are some settings you may find on your compressor. Threshold is the setting which the signal begin to compress your sound.

If your signal goes over a set threshold means the compressor will and the Ratio is 5 to 1 compressor 1 db for every five db over the threshold.. Gain boosts the whole volume. Attach how fast the compressor will act when the signal goes past the threshold milli-seconds. Release will act when the signal has dropped below the threshold.

A soft knee will gradually increase the signal while the hard knee will apply the same amount of compression if over the threshold. You need to use an EQ to bring back the highs after the compressor is done with the signal.
