Adjusting the Overall Volume Using the Master Compressor
Compressor is an effect commonly used to limit and compress the dynamics
(softness/loudness) of an audio signal. For signals that vary widely in dynamics,
such as vocals and guitar parts, it "squeezes" the dynamic range, effectively making
soft sounds louder and loud sounds softer. When used with gain to boost the overall
level, this creates a more powerful, more consistently high-level sound.
