Frequently Asked Questions


What is compressed audio?

It is common practice in the music industry to use tools, programs, and files that preserve the entire audio quality of music when it is recorded, mixed and saved. Prior to the invention of digital audio, song recordings were stored on analog media such as vinyl records, tape cassettes, and eventually CDs. The data stored on these devices may be large in comparison to their physical size, but they have the capacity to store most, if not all, of the information needed to play your music at high quality. This is one of the primary reasons why vinyl records are so popular among audiophiles.

What is compression in music?

The loud and quiet elements of a recorded sound can be more evenly distributed using dynamic range compression in music production. Mixing music, along with equalization and audio effects such as reverb and delay, is regarded as a critical task. To achieve the best results, music producers must understand how to compress everything from percussion to modern studio vocals. Dynamic range compression is fundamentally different from data compression technologies used to reduce the size of digital files for storage or transmission.

Why is audio compression used in music?

In music, compression is used to reduce the dynamic range of signals that contain both loud and quiet elements so that both can be heard clearly. Consider the distinction between a soft sound, such as a whispered vocal, and the aggressive crack of a snare. The dynamics must be managed by the mix engineer in order for both to be heard on a recording. However, even within the same sound, the loudest moments can easily overshadow the quietest details. Consider the sound of a recorded drum set to help you understand it. A transient is the sudden onset of sound when the stick strikes the drum skin. It's the term for the initial burst of energy that occurs when a sound begins. In most sounds, the transient is the most audible part of the signal. Compression is frequently required to hear the transients as well as the body of the sound. To return to the drum example, compression reduces the volume of the loud stick hits while increasing the volume of each drum's sustaining tone and the decay of the sound in the room.

what are the big four common compression types?

The four most common types of compressors are tube, optical, FET, and VCA compressors. Tube compressors are one of the oldest types of compressors and are still used today for their distinct "vintage" sound. Optical compressors use a light element and a light-emitting diode to reduce the amplitude of the output signal. FET compressors use Field Effect Transistor circuits to mimic the sound of tube compressors. VCA compressors use Voltage Controlled Amplifiers and are popular for use on the mix bus and instrument groups.

We've come so far in the 21st century — Why do we still use compressed audio?

The first iPod, released in 2001, had a storage capacity of 5GB and could hold approximately 1000 songs. Smartphones now have hundreds of gigabytes of data storage, allowing you to store hundreds of thousands of songs on a single device. Why are we still settling for low-quality audio when we've made significant progress in addressing our data storage concerns – and because compressed and lossy files were designed to address data storage issues in the first place? It's simply a matter of habit. MP3 and AAC files are the industry standard for storing, selling and downloading digital music. Those who prefer higher-quality audio will have to go out of their way to find stores that sell music in FLAC or WAV format. Purchasing CDs and ripping their lossless audio directly to your computer is still the quickest and most convenient way to build a lossless music library on your computer. If you enjoy an artist's work, you should consider purchasing their album. Rather than purchasing their music from iTunes or Spotify, you are directly supporting them through your company – and as an added bonus, you get to keep their music in lossless quality.

Is it safe to allow access to my drive?

How long will it take to upload my audio?

In order to upload your audio for cropping or editing, the size of your audio must be taken into consideration. Improved-quality audios with higher resolution will take longer to upload as compared to low-quality audios with lower resolution, which will take less time.

Will the quality of my audios decrease after compressing?
