Quote from: "Trancefreak"From what I see, both dynamic range compressors and limiters reduce peaks in audio. Don't they both affect the audio quality?Also, I used a limiter on my music, and it looks like the whole thing was amplified, except for the peaks, which became quieter compared to the rest of the audio. Does that mean that the limiter was actually a compressor?I'm confused.
QuoteYes. In fact, a limiter is a compressor set to extreme settings.

Quotebut the more electronic styles (especially those with hard in their name) will most likely suffer from adding headroom to the mix.

Listening to a well engineered/mastered song and right after listening to a poorly made one feels like a significant drop on the volume level. People dont really like to turn kilometers on their volume bars/knobs while shuffling through a playlists (i dont, for sure). Same goes with radios and any other streaming sources. That's one of the reason why proper mastering became a requirement nowadays, if anyone plans to open to larger masses with his song.
