What Are Dynamics?


One of the basics of understanding Audio Engineering is Dynamics. Dynamics are directly related to the volume of an audio signal. There are a few different kinds of Dynamic Processors that you should know. First is a Compressor. What a Compressor does is it makes loud sounds quieter and quiet sounds louder compressing the dynamic range. Second is a Limiter. This does exactly what it sounds like; it doesn’t let the audio signal get louder than a certain volume. Third is an Expander. This is just the exact opposite of a compressor, making loud sounds louder and quiet sounds quieter. Fourth is a Gate. A gate turns down or silences audio signals that are too quiet or unwanted, and only allows for signals that exceed the volume threshold set by the gate.READ MORE
