Dynamics Processors

The dynamics processors include compressors, gates or Limter. A compressor works as a kind of "automatic" control: if the Eingansgsignal a certain value (threshold) exceeds the gain of the compressor is reduced, the output signal that is absorbed (the desired threshold of a compressor is usually a few decibels below the maximum allowable level). The compression ratio indicates in this context, which increase in the input signal to an leads by 1 dB higher output signal. A ratio of 4:1 says, therefore, that increasing the input signal above the threshold by 4 dB, an increase of only 1 dB at the output leads.
