    Is there any freeware compressing utility (As in peak compression, not data compression - I already have an MP3 encoder)? I am making recordings of my bass on my computer, but a problem is there are so many peaks that I can't make the recordings "loud" enough.

    Also, is there any reliable free recording software that supports DirectX plug-ins? I guess I am asking too much for nothing but one can only hope :D

    I think I just found what i needed at www.peaklimiter.com .
    Is compressing the same thing as peak limiting+normalizing?
