Using a Compressor?

Posted on

Member Since: Jan 21, 2008

I'm reading several audio production books at the moment. Some of these offer good advice on how to get hot levels using a compressor. But I'm having trouble decoding the terminology.

I understand the following: set the ratio to 2:1. Set attack and release slow. Easy.

I DONT understand this: set compressor for up to 5db or less compression??

Huh? I thought it's the Ratio that decides how agressively the signal over the threshold is compressed. Is the author now talking about the Threshold settings?

Please help?
