Digital signal limiters and dynamic-range compressors generate aliasing as an undesirable side effect. This aliasing can be clearly audible. The origin of aliasing in digital limiters and compressors is discussed. Soft limiting, increasing the compressor detector time constant, and higher order detectors are discussed as methods to reduce aliasing.
