Compression Limiting (CL) is a compression technique used for audio compression in hearing aids. Compression Limiting (CL) is characterized by high compression rates and short response times
. Slide's compression limiting process is designed to push the output signal below the user 's tolerance level. In addition, spectral distortion of low level input signals is level boosted to minimize distortion. The compression factor of Compression Limiting is above 5 and the response times are 5 ms.
