explanation on effects?
 
as I have said before, I have been making music for about 3 years (3 and a half now) and what I have been wondering is what are effects supposed to do? (I know what delay, reverb and bitcrushing, skipping, that kind of stuff does) but like grain delay and the glue compressor? what does that stuff do? what is it for?
I know this sounds newbish but I really would like to know and how do I learn if I don't ask?

go watch a bunch of guitar fx pedal demos on you tube. It'll be clear and you'll get what they all are. Compression though is a complex beast.

You may want to check out something like this book
modern recording techniques
it's a classic

Honestly the best option is to experiment with the effect and find out their limits, what they can do, and how they can work for you to accomplish what you wish to achieve.

It's a lot like politics or trolling on an online forum.

Nice reference list. This is very helpful.

Even though this is kind of an explination of how to use this specific piece of software and kind of an ad, it could be used as a quick and dirty guide for compression on common elements. Compression is the one thing I still feel like I don't really know well at all after however damn long I've been doing this. Was watching this while re-installing software last night.
