Compressor, Limiter Plugins [VST, AU, AAX]DAW music production AAX, AudioUnit and VST compressor plugins, limiter plugins, and dynamics (transient, gate) plugins for adjusting audio dynamic range both creatively and technically, including in surround sound. Compressors are best used to reduce loudness swings of vocals, drums and other sounds. At the same time compressors with a higher attack time can be used to augment attack phases (transients) of the sounds, to add "punch". Limiters are used to force a track to stay within the required dynamic range, and for loudness maximization.
