The compressor used in the linuxDSP MBC2 does have a kind of gentle tape
saturation style soft clipping in the final stage, so (only) if you push
the levels high there will be a gradual overload - the idea is that if
you have your gain structure correct you will run into this gentle kind
of overdrive without / just before hitting the kind of fierce hard
cipping which can happen at the output of the DAC / soundcard (and which
tends to happen suddenly and without any warning). The softer clipping
is intended to be a gradual indication that you are approaching the
limit and might need to back off a little if you want to keep the signal
clean, but it can of course be used as an effect in its own right too.
It's probably best thought of as part of the 'character' of the
compressor, in the same way that analogue equivalents (and other
plugins) have their own 'sound'. For the most part it should have no
effect - its just designed to give the compressor a more analogue
character when pushed.
