Artist's Description

I am a sucker for trying to understand that which interests me. Even if it is hella over my head. I am again indebted to Billyboy for explaining the dynamics of compressing frequencies.

I feel like a bit of a dynamo lately.. and so any body up for a little perfect pressure?

Thanks for the explain Billyb.. I have read it enough times to where I just had to do some art about it!!

Comment left by Billyb on the piece written by me called One of Life’s Mysteries

Squeezed dynamic…
In the audio world this is known as compression, where the extreme frequencies on both end of the spectrum are “compressed” so that they can be managed more easily and sit well in the mix. The end result is a clipped sound which is actually louder and has more punch. When the dynamic range is compressed, of course the risk is that the sound is flat and lifeless… and that is where the quality of the compressor comes in. Many of the vintage manufacturers, such as Fairchild and Telefunken built audio compressors that actually add character to the sound through the compression process. These compressors are rare and difficult to maintain and service, but their value is well apprciated by true audiophiles and so justifies their high cost
