Just out of curiosity - I am really curious about the software they give
in the examples.  For instance - does the latency remain constant for
all values of compression/threshold/etc? 

If the latency varies at all, and they are using "parallel compression,"
what they are doing has nothing to do with compression, but is simply a
level-dependent chorus/doubling.

My bands, CD projects, music, news, and pictures:

My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
