    This is a representation of the amount of compression that is applied to a signal that has passed the unit's threshold and triggered the compression circuits. For example, a compression ratio of two to one (2:1) would mean that once the signal has passed the threshold, enough compression would be applied so that a signal surge of two decibels at input would only result in a one-decibel increase at output.
