Multiband Compression Basics
Compression is one of the most commonly used (and misunderstood) audio processing techniques in modern recording. Simply put, compressing an audio track reduces the dynamic range between its loudest and quietest parts, thus creating a perceived increase in overall volume.
Multi-band compressors, often found on the mastering chain, allows for even further manipulation by applying varying levels of compression to different sets of frequencies.
