Analog compression before digital? I do it, because I am not totally knocked out with plug in compression so far.... and I am pretty much doing what I used to do while recording to 2" tape.. I dont do it for "tape sound" (*see below) Or to serve max level to my converters (*see below) I do it to compress! What do you DAW guys do? Any different behavior specifically to record to DAW? * I USED to try compression to get 'tape sound" AND to serve Max level to my converters, but I found this to be a bogus procedure & a waste of time! Digital compression, the shrink is in! Who is first on the couch? Yezzz? Vot zeems to bee zee proplem?
