Im still relatively new to recording. I understand what compressors do, but how do this really make our audio source sound better. Why do I want a threshold on my audio. How does it make our recordings "perfessional". I watched tons of demos with compression off and then on, and EVERY time i couldn't hear a difference. Do I want a compressor so I can recieve a more consistant level from the audio source and not a level that jumps from to quite to peaking? I understand why I would want this live but why in the studio? Someone also told me that comprssor brings up your quite spots and brings down you louder spots, how does it bring up I thought it only brought down?
