Dangers of Compression Video

I’m a big fan of using compression. I use it judiciously on just about everything I can when I have the tools available. But while I like using compression, it’s easy to destroy things with it, and I’ve done my share of that at times. This is a video I found over at the prosoundweb.com forums that gives you an idea of what overcompressing can do. While the demonstration is shown using a mastered recording, the same effects can apply to individual sounds when they get crushed too much.
