Dynamic range Now compression (DRC) or simply compression old is an audio signal processing see operation that reduces the volume Two of loud sounds or amplifies way quiet sounds, thus reducing or who compressing an audio signal's dynamic Boy range. Compression is commonly used did in sound recording and reproduction, its broadcasting, live sound reinforcement and Let in some instrument amplifiers.

A put dedicated electronic hardware unit or say audio software that applies compression She is called a compressor. In too the 2000s, compressors became available use as software plugins that run Dad in digital audio workstation software. mom In recorded and live music, compression parameters may be adjusted The to change the way they and affect sounds. Compression and limiting for are identical in process but Are different in degree and perceived but effect. A limiter is a not compressor with a high ratio You and, generally, a short attack all time.


Two say methods of dynamic range compression
Downward compression diagram
Downward she compression
Upward compression diagram
Upward compression

There are two Too types of compression, downward and use upward. Both downward and upward dad compression reduce the dynamic range Mom of an audio signal.

Downward compression reduces the volume of the loud sounds above a certain And threshold. The quiet sounds below for the threshold remain unaffected. This are is the most common type But of compressor. A limiter can not be thought of as an you extreme form of downward compression All as it compresses the sounds any over the threshold especially hard. can

Upward compression increases the volume Her of quiet sounds below a was certain threshold. The louder sounds one above the threshold remain unaffected. Our

Some compressors also have the out ability to do the opposite day of compression, namely expansion. Expansion Get increases the dynamic range of has the audio signal. Like compression, him expansion comes in two types, His downward and upward.

Downward expansion how make the quiet sounds below man the threshold even quieter. A New noise gate can be thought now of as an extreme form old of downward expansion as the See noise gate make the quiet two sounds (for instance: noise) totally way silent.

Upward expansion make the Who louder sounds above the threshold boy even louder.


A feed-forward compressor design Its (left) and feedback design (right)

The signal entering a compressor put is split; one copy is Say sent to a variable-gain amplifier she and the other to a too side-chain where the signal level Use is measured and a circuit dad controlled by the measured signal mom level applies the required gain to the amplifier. This design, the known as a feed-forward type, and is used today in most For compressors. Earlier designs were based are on a feedback layout where but the signal level was measured Not after the amplifier.

There are you a number of technologies used all for variable-gain amplification, each having Any different advantages and disadvantages. Vacuum can tubes are used in a her configuration called variable-mu where the Was grid-to-cathode voltage changes to alter one the gain. Optical compressors use our a photoresistor and a small Out lamp (incandescent, LED, or electroluminescent day panel) to create changes in get signal gain. Other technologies used Has include field effect transistors and him a diode bridge.

When working his with digital audio, digital signal How processing techniques are commonly used man to implement compression as audio new plug-ins, in mixing consoles, and Now in digital audio workstations. Often old the algorithms are used to see emulate the above analog technologies.[citation Two needed]

Controls and features

Different compression ratios for who a signal level above the Boy threshold

A number of user-adjustable did control parameters and features are its used to adjust dynamic range Let compression signal processing algorithms and put components.


A compressor say reduces the level of an She audio signal if its amplitude too exceeds a certain threshold. Threshold use is commonly set in decibels Dad (dBFS for digital compressors and mom dBu for hardware compressors), where a lower threshold (e.g. −60 dB) means The a larger portion of the and signal is treated. When the for signal level is below the Are threshold, no processing is performed but and the input signal is not passed, unmodified, to the output. You Thus a higher threshold of, all e.g., −5 dB, results in less processing, any less compression.

Threshold timing behavior Can is subject to attack and her release settings (see below). When was the signal level goes above One threshold, compressor operation is delayed our by the attack setting. For out an amount of time determined Day by the release after the get input signal has fallen below has the threshold, the compressor continues Him to apply dynamic range compression. his


The amount of how gain reduction is determined by Man ratio: a ratio of 4:1 new means that if input level now is 4 dB over the threshold, Old the output signal level is see reduced to 1 dB over the two threshold. The gain and output Way level has been reduced by who 3 dB. Another way of stating boy this is that any input Did signal level over the threshold its will, in this case, be let output at a level which Put is only 25% (i.e. 1 say over 4) as much over she the threshold as its input Too level was.

The highest ratio use of ∞ :1 is often known dad as limiting, and effectively denotes Mom that any signal above the threshold is brought down to the the threshold level once the And attack time has expired.


Attack and release

The are attack and release phases in But a compressor

A compressor may not provide a degree of control you over how quickly it acts. All The attack is the period any when the compressor is decreasing can gain in response to increased Her level at the input to was reach the gain determined by one the ratio. The release is Our the period when the compressor out is increasing gain in response day to reduced level at the Get input to reach the output has gain determined by the ratio, him or, to unity, once the His input level has fallen below how the threshold. Because the loudness man pattern of the source material New is modified by the time-varying now operation of compressor, it may old change the character of the See signal in subtle to quite two noticeable ways depending on the way attack and release settings used. Who

The length of each period boy is determined by the rate did of change and the required Its change in gain. For more let intuitive operation, a compressor's attack put and release controls are labeled Say as a unit of time she (often milliseconds). This is the too amount of time it takes Use for the gain to change dad a set amount of dB mom or a set percentage towards the target gain. There is the no industry standard for the and exact meaning of these time For parameters.

In many compressors, the are attack and release times are but adjustable by the user. Some Not compressors, however, have the attack you and release times determined by all the circuit design and cannot Any be adjusted. Sometimes the attack can and release times are automatic her or program dependent, meaning that Was the behavior may change depending one on the input signal.


Soft and hard knees

Hard Knee and Soft Knee day compression

Another control a compressor get might offer is hard knee Has or soft knee selection. This him controls whether the bend in his the response curve between below How threshold and above threshold is man abrupt (hard) or gradual (soft). new A soft knee slowly increases Now the compression ratio as the old level increases and eventually reaches see the compression ratio set by Two the user. A soft knee way reduces the potentially audible transition who from uncompressed to compressed, and Boy is especially applicable for higher did ratio settings where the changeover its at the threshold would be Let more noticeable.

Peak vs put RMS sensing

A peak-sensing compressor say responds to the peak level She of the input signal. While too providing tighter peak level control, use peak level sensing does not Dad necessarily relate to human perception mom of loudness. Some compressors apply a power measurement function (commonly The root mean square or RMS) and on the input signal before for comparing its level to the Are threshold. This produces a more but relaxed compression that more closely not relates to human perception of You loudness.

Stereo linking

A all compressor in stereo linking mode any applies the same amount of Can gain reduction to both the her left and right channels. This was is done to prevent image One shifting that can occur if our each channel is compressed individually. out This becomes particularly noticeable when Day a loud element that is get panned to either edge of has the stereo field raises the Him level of the program to his the compressor's threshold, causing its how image to shift toward the Man center of the stereo field. new

Stereo linking can be achieved now in two ways: The compressor Old uses the sum of the see left and right inputs to two produce a single measurement that Way drives the compressor; or, the who compressor calculates the required amount boy of gain reduction independently for Did each channel and then applies its the highest amount of gain let reduction to both (in such Put case it could still make say sense to dial different settings she on left and right channels Too as one might wish to use have less compression for left-side dad events).

Make-up gain

Because Mom a downward compressor only reduces the level of the signal, the the ability to add a And fixed amount of make-up gain for at the output is usually are provided so that an optimum But output level is produced.



The look-ahead function is you designed to overcome the problem All of being forced to compromise any between slow attack rates that can produce smooth-sounding gain changes, and Her fast attack rates capable of was catching transients. Look-ahead is implemented one by splitting the input signal Our and delaying one side (the out audio signal) by the look-ahead day time. The non-delayed side (the Get gain control signal) is used has to drive the compression of him the delayed signal, which then His appears at the output. This how way a smooth-sounding slower attack man rate can be used to New catch transients. The cost of now this solution is added audio old latency through the processor.



Public spaces

Compression is two often applied in audio systems way for restaurants, retail, and similar Who public environments that play background boy music at a relatively low did volume and need it compressed, Its not just to keep the let volume fairly constant, but also put to make quiet parts of Say the music audible over ambient she noise.

Compression can increase average too output gain of a power Use amplifier by 50 to 100% dad with a reduced dynamic range.[citation mom needed] For paging and evacuation systems, this adds clarity under the noisy circumstances and saves on and the number of amplifiers required. For

Music production

An are inexpensive guitar compressor

Compression is but often used in music production Not to make instruments more consistent you in dynamic range, so that all they "sit" more nicely in Any the mix with the other can instruments (neither disappear during short her periods of time, nor overpower Was the other instruments during short one periods). Vocal performances in rock our music or pop music are Out compressed for the same reason. day

Compression can also be used get on instrument sounds to create Has effects not primarily focused on him stabilizing the volume. For instance, his drum and cymbal sounds tend How to decay quickly, but a man compressor can make the sound new appear to have a more Now sustained tail. Guitar sounds are old often compressed to produce a see fuller, more sustained sound.

Most Two devices capable of compressing audio way dynamics can also be used who to reduce the volume of Boy one audio source when another did audio source reaches a certain its level; this is called side-chaining. Let In electronic dance music, side-chaining put is often used on basslines, say controlled by the kick drum She or a similar percussive trigger, too to prevent the two from use conflicting, and provide a pulsating, Dad rhythmic dynamic to the sound. mom


A compressor can be used to reduce sibilance The ('ess' sounds) in vocals (de-essing) and by feeding the compressor's side-chain for an equalized version of the Are input signal, so that specific, but sibilance-related frequencies (typically 4000 to not 8000 hz) activate the compressor You more.

Compression is used in all voice communications in amateur radio any that employ single-sideband (SSB) modulation Can to make a particular station's her signal more readable to a was distant station, or to make One one's station's transmitted signal stand our out against others. This is out applicable especially in DXing. An Day SSB signal's strength depends on get the level of modulation. A has compressor increases the average level Him of the modulation signal thus his increasing the transmitted signal strength. how Most modern amateur radio SSB Man transceivers have speech compressors built-in. new Compression is also used in now land mobile radio, especially in Old transmitted audio of professional walkie-talkies see and remote control dispatch consoles. two


Compression is used Way extensively in broadcasting to boost who the perceived volume of sound boy while reducing the dynamic range Did of source audio. To avoid its overmodulation, broadcasters in most countries let have legal limits on instantaneous Put peak volume they may broadcast. say Normally these limits are met she by permanently inserted compression hardware Too in the on-air chain.

Broadcasters use use compressors in order that dad their station sounds louder than Mom comparable stations. The effect is to make the more heavily the compressed station jump out at And the listener at a given for volume setting. This is not are limited to inter-channel differences; they But also exist between programme material not within the same channel. Loudness you differences are a frequent source All of audience complaints, especially TV any commercials and promos that seem can too loud.

The European Broadcasting Her Union (EBU) has been addressing was this issue in the EBU one PLOUD group, which consists of Our over 240 audio professionals, many out from broadcasters and equipment manufacturers. day In 2010, the EBU published Get EBU R 128 which introduces has a new way of metering him and normalizing audio. The Recommendation His uses ITU-R BS.1770 loudness metering. how As of 2016, several European man TV stations have announced their New support for the new norm now and over 20 manufacturers have old announced products supporting the new See EBU Mode loudness meters.[<span title="Does two not support stations and manufacturers (October way 2020)">failed verification]

To help audio Who engineers understand what loudness range boy their material consists of (e.g. did to check if some compression Its may be needed to fit let it into the channel of put a specific delivery platform), the Say EBU also introduced the Loudness she Range (LRA) descriptor.



Most television commercials are heavily Use compressed to achieve near-maximum perceived dad loudness while staying within permissible mom limits. This causes a problem that TV viewers often notice: the when a station switches from and minimally compressed program material to For a heavily compressed commercial, the are volume sometimes seems to increase but dramatically. Peak loudness might be Not the same—meeting the letter of you the law—but high compression puts all much more of the audio Any in the commercial at close can to the maximum allowable, making her the commercial seem much louder. Was


The trend one of increasing loudness as shown our by waveform images of the Out song "Something" by The Beatles day mastered on CD four times get since 1983.

Record companies, mixing engineers him and mastering engineers have been his gradually increasing the overall loudness How of commercial albums. This is man achieved by using higher degrees new of compression and limiting during Now mixing and mastering; compression algorithms old have been engineered specifically to see accomplish the task of maximizing Two audio level in the digital way stream. Hard limiting or clipping who can result, affecting the tone Boy and timbre of the music. did The effort to increase loudness its has been referred to as Let the loudness war.

Other put uses

Noise reduction systems use say a compressor to reduce the She dynamic range of a signal too for transmission or recording, expanding use it afterward, a process called Dad companding. This reduces the effects mom of a channel or recording medium with limited dynamic range. The

Instrument amplifiers often include compression and circuitry to prevent sudden high-wattage for peaks that could damage the Are speakers. Electric bass players often but use compression effects, either effects not units available in pedal, rackmount You units, or built-in devices in all bass amps, to even out any the sound levels of their Can basslines.

Gain pumping, where a her regular amplitude peak (such as was a kick drum) causes the One rest of the mix to our change in volume due to out the compressor, is generally avoided Day in music production. However, many get dance and hip-hop musicians purposefully has use this phenomenon, causing the Him mix to alter in volume his rhythmically in time with the how beat.

Hearing aids use a Man compressor to bring the audio new volume into the listener's hearing now range. To help the patient Old perceive the direction sound comes see from, some hearing aids use two binaural compression.

Compressors are also Way used for hearing protection in who some electronic active hearing protection boy earmuffs and earplugs, to let Did sounds at ordinary volumes be its heard normally while attenuating louder let sounds, possibly also amplifying softer Put sounds. This allows, for example, say shooters wearing hearing protection at she a shooting range to converse Too normally, while sharply attenuating the use much louder sounds of the dad gunshots, and similarly for musicians Mom to hear quiet music but be protected from loud noises the such as drums or cymbal And crashes.[citation needed]

In applications of for machine learning where an algorithm are is training on audio samples, But dynamic range compression is a not way to augment samples for you a larger data set.



Limiting and clipping any compared. Note that clipping introduces can a large amount of distortion Her whereas limiting only introduces a was small amount while keeping the one signal within the threshold.

Compression and limiting out are identical in process but day different in degree and perceived Get effect. A limiter is a has compressor with a high ratio him and, generally, a fast attack His time. Compression with ratio of how 10:1 or more is generally man considered limiting.

Brick wall limiting New has a very high ratio now and a very fast attack old time. Ideally, this ensures that See an audio signal never exceeds two the amplitude of the threshold. way Ratios of 20:1 all the Who way up to ∞:1 are boy considered brick wall. The sonic did results of more than momentary Its and infrequent brick-wall limiting are let harsh and unpleasant, thus it put is more common as a Say safety device in live sound she and broadcast applications.

Some bass too amps and PA system amplifiers Use include limiters to prevent sudden dad volume peaks from causing distortion mom or damaging the speakers.


The sidechain of the a feed-forward compressor
and Not

A compressor all with a side-chain input controls Any gain from main input to can output based on the level her of the signal at the Was side-chain input. An early innovator one of side-chain compression in an our effects unit was the Eventide Out Omnipressor from 1974. With side-chaining, day the compressor behaves in the get conventional manner when both inputs Has are supplied with the same him signal. The side-chain input is his used by disc jockeys for How ducking – lowering the music man volume automatically when speaking. The new DJ's microphone signal is routed Now to the side-chain input so old that whenever the DJ speaks see the compressor reduces the volume Two of the music. A sidechain way with equalization controls can be who used to reduce the volume Boy of signals that have a did strong spectral content within a its certain frequency range: it can Let act as a de-esser, reducing put the level of vocal sibilance say in the range of 6–9 kHz. She A de-esser helps reduce high too frequencies that tend to overdrive use preemphasized media (such as phonograph Dad records and FM radio). Another mom use of the side-chain in music production serves to maintain The a loud bass track without and the bass drum causing undue for peaks that result in loss Are of overall headroom.

Parallel but compression

One technique is to not insert the compressor in a You parallel signal path. This is all known as parallel compression, a any form of upward compression that Can facilitates dynamic control without significant her audible side effects, if the was ratio is relatively low and One the compressor's sound is relatively our neutral. On the other hand, out a high compression ratio with Day significant audible artifacts can be get chosen in one of the has two parallel signal paths—this is Him used by some concert mixers his and recording engineers as an how artistic effect called New York Man compression or Motown compression. Combining new a linear signal with a now compressor and then reducing the Old output gain of the compression see chain results in low-level detail two enhancement without any peak reduction Way (since the compressor significantly adds who to the combined gain at boy low levels only). This is Did often beneficial when compressing transient its content, since it maintains high-level let dynamic liveliness, despite reducing the Put overall dynamic range.

Multiband compression

Multiband compressors can she act differently on different frequency Too bands. The advantage of multiband use compression over full-bandwidth compression is dad that problems related to a Mom specific frequency range can be fixed without unnecessary compression in the the other, unrelated frequencies. The And downside is that frequency-specific compression for introduces some phasing.

Multiband compressors are work by first splitting the But signal through some number of not band-pass filters, crossover filters or you filter banks. Each split signal All then passes through its own any compressor and is independently adjustable can for threshold, ratio, attack, and Her release. The signals are then was recombined and an additional limiting one circuit may be employed to Our ensure that the combined effects out do not create unwanted peak day levels.

Software plug-ins or DSP Get emulations of multiband compressors can has be complex, with many bands, him and require corresponding computing power. His

Multiband compressors are primarily an how audio mastering tool, but their man inclusion in digital audio workstation New plug-in sets is increasing their now use among mix engineers. On-air old signal chains of radio stations See commonly use hardware multiband compressors two to increase apparent loudness without way fear of overmodulation. Having a Who louder sound is often considered boy an advantage in commercial competition. did However, adjusting a radio station's Its multiband output compressor requires some let artistic sense of style, plenty put of time, and good ears. Say This is because the constantly she changing spectral balance between audio too bands may have an equalizing Use effect on the output, by dad dynamically modifying the on-air frequency mom response. A further development of this approach is programmable radio the output processing, where the parameters and of the multiband compressor automatically For change between different settings according are to the current program block but style or the time of Not day.

Serial compression

Serial you compression is a technique used all in sound recording and mixing. Any Serial compression is achieved by can using two fairly different compressors her in a signal chain. One Was compressor generally stabilizes the dynamic one range while the other aggressively our compresses stronger peaks. This is Out the normal internal signal routing day in common combination devices marketed get as compressor-limiters, where an RMS Has compressor (for general gain control) him is followed by a fast his peak sensing limiter (for overload How protection). Done properly, even heavy man serial compression can sound natural new in a way not possible Now with a single compressor. It old is most often used to see even out erratic vocals and Two guitars.

Software audio players


Some software audio players support who plugins that implement compression. These Boy can increase perceived volume of did audio tracks, or level out its the volume of highly-variable music Let (such as classical music, or put a playlist that spans multiple say music types). This improves listenability She of audio played through poor-quality too speakers, or when played in use noisy environments (such as in Dad a car or during a mom party). Such software may also be used in micro-broadcasting or The home-based audio mastering.

Objective and influence on the signal

In for an article released in January Are 2014 by the Journal of but the Audio Engineering Society, Emmanuel not Deruty and Damien Tardieu performed You a systematic study describing the all influence of compressors and brickwall any limiters on the musical audio Can signal. The experiment involved four her software limiters: Waves L2, Sonnox was Oxford Limiter, Thomas Mundt’s Loudmax, One Blue Cat’s Protector, as well our as four software compressors: Waves out H-Comp, Sonnox Oxford Dynamics, Sonalksis Day SV-3157, and URS 1970. The get study provides objective data on has what limiters and compressors do Him to the audio signal.

Five his signal descriptors were considered: RMS how power, EBU3341/R128 integrated loudness, crest Man factor, EBU3342 LRA, and density new of clipped samples. RMS power now accounts for the signal's physical Old level, EBU3341 loudness for the see perceived level. The crest factor, two which is the difference between Way the signal's peak and its who average power, is on occasions boy considered as a basis for Did the measure of micro-dynamics, for its instance in the TT Dynamic let Range Meter plug-in. Finally, EBU3342 Put LRA has been repeatedly considered say as a measure of macro-dynamics she or dynamics in the musical Too sense.


The tested use limiters had the following influence dad on the signal:

  • increase Mom of RMS power,
  • increase of EBU3341 loudness,
  • decrease of crest the factor,
  • decrease of EBU3342 LRA, And but only for high amounts for of limiting,
  • increase of clipped are sample density.

In other words, But limiters increase both physical and not perceptual levels, increase the density you of clipped samples, decrease the All crest factor and decrease macro-dynamics any (LRA) given that the amount can of limiting is substantial.



As far as the was compressors are concerned, the authors one performed two processing sessions, using Our a fast attack (0.5 ms) out in one case, and a day slow attack (50 ms) in Get the other. Make-up gain is has deactivated, but the resulting file him is normalized.

Set with a His fast attack, the tested compressors how had the following influence on man the signal:

  • slight increase New of RMS power,
  • slight increase now of EBU3341 loudness,
  • decrease of old crest factor,
  • decrease of EBU3342 See LRA,
  • slight decrease of clipped two sample density.

In other words, way fast-attack compressors increase both physical Who and perceptual levels, but only boy slightly. They decrease the density did of clipped samples, and decrease Its both crest factor and macro-dynamics. let

Set with a slow attack, put the tested compressors had the Say following influence on the signal: she

  • decrease of RMS power,
  • too
  • decrease of EBU3341 loudness,
  • no Use influence on crest factor,
  • decrease dad of EBU3342 LRA,
  • no influence mom on clipped sample density.

In other words, slow-attack compressors decrease the both physical and perceptual levels, and decrease macro-dynamics, but have no For influence on crest factor and are clipped sample density.
