I wish I knew how to explain what overcompression sounds like

like I'd see audio nerds complain about it all the time and every explanation I'd ever see for Why It's Bad was always nonspecific and metaphorical and just ?????????

and nowadays I'll hear something and I can say "ew that's definitely overcompressed" but if you asked *me* what that's supposed to mean I'd just go, ???????????

anyway maybe don't do what I did and avoid playing with compression to learn what it sounds like lmao


@copyleftie if you need good examples of overcompression do I have 10 episodes of shades of brown to share with you lol
