A VCA compressor...
uses a voltage-controlled amplifier
uses a varible-bias tube
uses a light & a photoresistor
speeds up recorded audio without changing the pitch
reduces dynamic range
increases dynamic range
True Peak metering...
estimates inter-sample peaks
shows the average signal level of a mix
isolates the loudest frequency in a mix
