  • Dynamic range compression, despite being one of the most widely used audio effects, is still poorly understood, and there is little formal knowledge and analysis of compressor design techniques. In this tutorial we describe several different approaches to digital dynamic range compressor design. Digital implementations of several classic analog approaches are given, as well as designs from recent literature, and new approaches that address possible issues. Several design techniques are analyzed… CONTINUE READING
