What does compression do to a wavefile and samples?
These sequences for trumpets are the same, but one sequence has a compressor insert for each of the trumpets (Bb trumpet and C trumpet) while the other does not have any compression.
Which sequence sounds better?
I think I favor the compressed signal, but what does the compressor actually do? It's more than loudness. So what am I hearing?
Will this have a similar effect on woodwinds and strings?
I'd like to know your view on this.
