Compression Settings

Shape it (low)

The minimal amount of compression, great for shaping the vocals and instruments in your music recordings

Squeeze it (medium)

Great for podcasts, interviews and streaming when you want to squeeze a little more pop out of your voice

Smash it (high)

Great for voice recording when you really want to smash it for that big broadcast sound

Try all settings with any source and adjust to your taste. Set your level before you select your compression setting and remember that compression will accentuate any noise that’s around you while you are recording.
