Hello all, I got my 1969 from Mercenary today. I started an 11-song mix and so far I really dig it. I got it for this mix to use on the 2-mix. I'm in big mode and I seem to be digging a fast (1 or 2) attack. For release I used 4, the first of the programe dependant settings and on the second I'm using 2, or maybe 1, it's not done yet. I only am using about 2-3 db reduction. My actual question is: is anybody having good luck going for a lot of reduction, and if so, what's the sound like. A couple times tonight I tried to use a lot and it sounded kind of dull, but as I said this is my first night with the thing and I'm sure different projects will get different results. Sorry if I'm rambling. I'm excited about this project and my new toy. I'm also listening to the Royer CD that Jay sent with the 1969.
