Radium Compressor is the system compressor in Radium,
but distributed as a standalone jack application.

Radium Compressor uses the stereo compressor found in
effect.lib in the Faust distribution.
This compressor is written by Julius O. Smith III.
It has been optimized by using fast approximate logarithmic
and exponential functions written by Paul Mineiro.

The GUI accurately shows the sound used for compression,
and how much, and how, the sound is compressed.
I haven't seen this in any audio compressor GUI before,
but it's probably been done before.
