In case you have the algorithm in form of a VST plugin, you could use my
VST plugin analyser. It allows you to measure the characteristic curve
and other program related behaviour. (see
http://www.savioursofsoul.de/Christian/?page_id=48 at the bottom for a
Behringer compressor). Together with an ASIO-VST Plugin you can even
measure real hardware (like the Behringer compressor in this case).
