Ericast 229 - The Compression Struggle

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

After last week's Listener Feedback episode I got serious (again) about talking about audio compression.  So, that's really all that this week's episode is about.

For those that are curious, this episode's Audacity settings are:

Threshold: -12 dB
Noise Floor: -70 dB
Ratio: 6:1
Attack Time: 0.2 secs
Decay Time: 1.0 secs

(As outlined by billw58 in a post on the Audacity Forum)

What do you think?  Does it sound better?  Worse?  About the same?  Call with your input -- 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or email me (eric) at
