Yes, that is what it is.
Compression. ...Instead of improving sound clarification it is promoting distortion through elimination of the essence, the music essence.
And I agree with Arny; "At the output of the microphone the sense of liveness is gone."
And if it's gone it cannot be recovered and improved upon, no matter what.
So instead of developing algorithms on a new product, get a mic(s), develop better ones that can capture the essence, the liveness...of the artist, of the musician, of the instrument, of the voice, of their soul, their emotional stance of the moment in time and space and dimension. ...The live impact in all its glory, power, resolution, revolving aura.
Yes, marketing propaganda, financial strategy of advertising.
The product? Don't know nothing about it, never tried it.
