Dynamic range compression (DRC) is a very commonly used audio effect. One use of DRC is to emphasize transients in an audio signal. The aim of this paper is to present an approach for automatically setting dynamic range compression timing parameters, adaptively, allowing parameters to adapt to the incoming audio signal, with the aim of emphasizing transients within percussive audio tracks. An implementation approach is presented.
