In most compressors you can set the attack. So the attack can be very short.

So you can boost the attack?

Isn't that the opposite of compression?


Not necessarily, no. Compression just basically means making the silent noices louder and loud noices more silent.

At least I think so.

Limiting the dynamic range means the attack of the notes sounds louder overall and the bass sounds punchier and 'more solid' in the mix as a result, you aren't getting peaks and troughs in the volume.

Is the whole "punch" thing caused by a strong attack?
