    What is gain reduction on a compressor?

    Here is one answer: The amount of gain reduction is determined by ratio: a ratio of 4:1 means that if input level is 4 dB over the threshold, the output signal level is 1 dB over the threshold. The gain (level) has been reduced by 3 dB: Threshold = −10 dB.
