When manual dynamic range compression is replaced by an automatic compression system, the sound engineer must still be able to choose some characteristics of the compression. An automatic system and the theory motivating its design are described. We have built a device (EMT 156) that enables the sound engineer to adjust any of the six static parameters; also, the system automatically chooses its own dynamic properties as a function of the input program signal.
