Dynamics Processor

A Dynamics Processor allows you to control the level (volume) of your audio. When set up correctly, it does this in a transparent way, not making hugely noticeable alterations to the sound, but nevertheless giving you the control that you may need.

All radio stations, television stations, pro club DJs, etc, use dynamics processors.

Examples of where a Dynamics Processor can help you:

OtsAV gives you a fully fledged, pro-quality dynamics processor comprising AGC, compressor and limiter. Full control is given to each of the characteristics of each processor section. You can duplicate a squashy or punchy radio sound if you like, but you can also obtain smooth, consistent audio that is not noticeably altered from the original, and yet all of a sudden your levels problems are solved.
