|German term or phrase: Stereo-Kompressoren in Subgruppen|
|Sorry, mehr habe ich nicht. Das ganze ist aus einer Bühnenanweisung einer R&B Band, aufgeführt unter dem Stichwort "Effekte". Komplett steht dort: "2 Stereo-Kompressoren in Subgruppen Bläser und Gesang"|
|Stereo compressors in the brass and vocals sub-groups|
This is describing the setup of a mixing desk for a band.
In big stage mixers, you have e.g. 32 or 64 channels of microphones and direct injection instruments, for the brass and vocals probably mikes.
Then you mix these into sub-groups, typically 8 or so stereo sub-groups. Then if you want to make one singer louder you push the fader for his/her microphone channel, but if you want to make all the backing vocals louder, you push the linked faders for the backing vocals stereo sub-group.
In this case, and it´s normal practice they are putting stereo compressors across these two sub-groups. To smooth out variations in the loudness, so that the brass section, for example, has a more consistent volume level than without.

Stereo compressor in the sections
Two stereo compressors in the wind and vocals sections.
I'd translate Subgruppen as sections, unless it applies only to a portion of the respective sections. In that case, sub-sections would be my suggestion. However, from the sentence, I think it's sections, actually
