    I'm taking an Audio class and my teacher gave us a 20 question pre-test. I figured out all but 1, and even though this doesn't have to be completed its driving me crazy. The question is- "The compressor’s side chain input can be used in a number ways to make
    different things happen. If you parallel a signal to the compressor’s
    program input and also to an equalizer and then to the sidechain input, the
    compressor becomes:
    o A Limiter.
    o A De-esser.
    o Variable gain amplifier.
    o A tube amplifier.

    If anyone knows the answer to this I would really appreciate it.

    Well, The answer is none of the above given the way the question is worded.
    If the question is worded '.... The compressor CAN become:
    THen the answer is a De-esser. Since the EQ can be set up to be sensitive to those special frequency's. But an EQ by itself does not create anything.
