A New Compression Strategy Based on a Guided Level Estimator

A new compression strategy combines linear and non-linear amplification in new ways. In steady acoustic environments, the compressor operates in a nearly linear manner; however, if the level of the acoustic environment changes more than a given amount, the gain swiftly follows. The system is designed to allow for a high global compression ratio, while maintaining near-linear performance for locally stable environments.
