Well DRC can be used to lower volume, but the most common use is to boost volume. Most modern music of all genres uses heavy dynamic range compression to boost volume.

Louder music sells better than higher quality music.

Re: [KERNEL][3G+WIFI][4.2.2] M-Kernel - a37
Quick question but my nexus 7 used to change normally but now it takes forever like it takes 3h to charge like 30 40 percent do you think it's kernel related?

Are you using the stock charger and cord?
The reason I ask is that I tried using the cord from my kindle cause it was longer and it would only charge about 10% per hour.

Sigh. Using compression to boost volume in playback is like the old saying; Make everything louder than everything else.

But M is right. It is (over)used to 'punch' up the sound in today's way over processed (popular) music. The only time I use it (when it is available) is when listening to music at low volumes, like going to sleep volume, to hold down big jumps in volume, and to not lose the quiet sounds completely

Using compression in recording or as an audio effect is a different matter.

I'm glad you took it out. It should only be a selectable feature. Less signal processing is good signal processing.

Well i would say its more like making everything just as loud as everything else.

Also i wouldn't say it is used to "punch" up music, as it actually does exactly the opposite. It eliminates the punch from music by making everything closer in volume.

Really happy with the PA 4.2.2 NIGHTLY and m37. I'm amazed at how smooth yet power friendly this is. I completely rebuild my n7 for the 4.2.2 stuff starting with a install of latest stock. Really awesome job metal, no problems to report!

You can find it in 4.2.2 factory image at this link (is inside the archive):
https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images

Then use fastboot to flash it
