    All chart music you hear today is compressed. That's how important.

    It's as fundamental as a microphone.

    By "getting help", you're fucking over the entire board. Next time...just go ask questions like that over in the "got questions" forum...you'll get the proper response over there.

    A compressor limits the dynamic range of a signal determined by the threshold and the ratio. For every one dB that passes the threshold will be reduced in dB by the ratio.

    A compressor will make all of your track the same volume so it won't clip & make that shitty sound. Use 4.1 compression on vocals if u don't know what ur doin & then add a little reverb. (DON'T OVERDO THE REVERB!)

    I'd argue that theoretically, the compressor isn't as fundamental as a mic..... but for all intensive purposes.... yeah :)

    And don't use a compressor if you don't know what you're doing. People that do know, *will* know what you did wrong.
