- Jun 04, 2018-

Audio compression is a method of reducing the dynamic range of a signal. All signal levels above the specified threshold are reduced by the specified ratio.

The example below shows how a signal level is reduced by 2:1 (the output level above the threshold is halved) and 10:1 (severe compression).
