I have over compressed a podcast and saved. What can I do to lessen the problem?
Expansion is the opposite of compression.
Chris’s compressor plugin will work as an expander if you use a negative value for compression.
Other plugins which can expand are available, e.g …
Are you talking about file compression (like MP3) or dynamic compression (a compressor effect)?
File compression is impossible to un-do because information is thrown-away to make a smaller file, and it’s gone.
Dynamic compression can sometimes be re-expanded but usually not because you don’t usually know the exact parameters and/or you don’t have an expander with exactly complementary parameters. And in the case of limiting (a kind of dynamic compression) the information is lost.
