Why do some compressor algos distort? [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

The original compressor algo was the "Platinum" algo, and its intention was to be a transparent compressor without coloration (a.k.a. distortion). Many found it to be an exceptional compressor but many others complained that it lacked character (a.k.a. distortion). So Apple decided to emulate the warmth (a.k.a. distortion) of older analog compressors and gave us a few algos to chose from that are emulating the sound of a few of those older pieces of analog gear.
