what is the use of compressor in the audio system?

an audio compressor keeps the audio below a certain level. They are very common in broadcast radio to prevent over-modulation. They may also boost lower levels up, but when they do both they are usually called an audio processor rather than just a compressor. They also help maintain a high level of modulation be keeping the average audio level higher. This is why commercials often seem to be louder. The audio has been processed so much that all the audio is at maximum and doesn't vary or have any lower levels.
