November Meeting Notice
Determining the Subjective Effects of Compression:
Techniques, Topologies, and Factors
Presented By
Chris Deckard — Deckard Audio and the AES PNW Section Committee

Thursday, November 6th, 2014. 7:30pm
Shoreline Community College, Music Building, Room 818
Directions to Shoreline CC

Compressors are a common tool these days. Modern digital consoles have them on every channel, as well as on the mix buses. But do you really know what is going on inside the box, and aside from what your ears tell you when you crank on the knobs, how good a grasp do you have on what a compressor actually does?

Our newest Committee member, Chris Deckard, has been delving into the topic, and has been working on a virtual compressor simulator that allows him to explore a design without touching a soldering iron.

At our November meeting, we'll take a look at Chris' simulation, and then look at some classic compressor implementations followed with a demo using actual hardware.

Steve Malott
AES PNW 2014-2015 Section Chair
