THRESHOLD

the audio level at which the compression algorithm will be triggered. this is the baseline basically. audio that exceeds the level you set it at will be compressed, or lowered in volume, but in order for this to happen, it has to duck out everything that's quieter than it as well. that's just the way compression works! when something loud exceeds the threshold, it brings everything else down under it.

RATIO

this has to do with what happens at the threshold level. this controls how much the sound will be affected when it hits the threshold level. the higher the ratio, the more gain reduction. the lower the ratio, the less. consider the higher ratios i.e. 25:1 to be hard compression or limiting and the lower ratios i.e. 3:1 to be a very subtle compression of the dynamic range.

ATTACK

this is the control of how quickly in time the compression algorithm reacts. the attack value is going to control the length of time it takes to REDUCE audio levels whenever LOUD sounds hit the threshold trigger. the longer the attack phase, the longer audio will be ducked out after a hard kick hits the mix, but like dynamically. so it's essentially taking longer for the sound to reach the level it is to be compressed to. vice versa for a short attack phase.

RELEASE

release is the time it takes for the ducked off audio levels that just got hit from the attack phase to return back to their normal, uncompressed level. the longer you set your release time, the longer sound will be ducked off from hard hits. and vice versa for setting the release time shorter.

GAIN

if you set a threshold in which all sound above it gets reduced, in the end the volume of the final product would be reduced, right? this is why we need gain to make up for the loudness lost. gain is just amplification, how much louder you need your mix to be after it gets compressed.


sincerely yours,
zendan
