Quote 10ndaYii: reduction means
means to reduce something. So that it is less than it was.
means that the amplitude or volume of the signal has been reduced.
of gain reduction can be measured in dB. so if the input to a compressor was +10dBu, and
the output was +8dBu there has been a 2dB gain reduction.
High and low gain
reduction refers to the number of dBs of gain reduction.. so 2dB gain reduction would be
considered low gain reduction, and 10dB might be considered to be high gain reduction.
