just a quick question for all you guys that know a lot more than i do. i've been a home recordist for about 2 years, and i'm using Pro Tools le, just in case you need to know. anyway, usually after i record some tracks and get them sounding decent, i'll open up a master track and put t-racks eq(which always makes it sound better to my ears), and i usually put a compressor plug-in on the master as well(anywhere from 3-to-1 to 10-to-1) to try and get more volume. my questions:1. is it typical practice to put compression on the master track? 2. when i have a compressor on the master, i like the way all the instruments sound together, but if there is a part of the song where the guitars are not present, and it's just the drums, the volume of the drums goes through the roof, to the point where they're alot louder bythemselves than when all the other instruments are together. could someone tell me what i'm doing wrong? should i not be using a compressor on the master track? thanks for the help.
