A type of compressor, used by FM radio stations, which breaks up the audio frequency spectrum into from three to five bands, runs them through individual compression components, and then add them back together, resulting in a kind of re-equalization. This process tends to even out the bands, reducing the boominess of mixes with heavy bass, and the tinniness of mixes with a lot of high-frequency signal. See split-band compression.
Multicast, multicasting an Ethernet addressing scheme that is used to target specific packets at specific device types (sort or MIDI system exclusive for ip) or for broadcasting to all nodes simultaneously. Multicasting is a one-to-many approach to data distribution. Takes place at the ‘edge’ of the internet.« Back to Glossary Index
