Re: On air compression

Your talking about the "loudness wars" where everything was compressed to the point no dynamics were left. Radio stations have been doing this for decades, partly because of regulations, but in the 1990s stuff started to be recorded this way as well. It's becoming less common now though, and has been for quite some time.
