Single band compressor
Preset name Description
Basic Comp Basic setting for evening out the level
Basic Limit Basic limiter setting
Hard Comp Results in fairly deep compression
Hard Limit Deep limiter setting
If using the compressor causes the sound to become distorted, lower the gain of each band or adjust the mixdown so that
the maximum level does not quite cause the overload indicator to light. By doing this, you can achieve a good balance and
effectively increase the overall sound level.
