I'm trying to figure out getting my overall sound levels to where i'd like them. So far for each instrument I just have eq, then I use c1 compressor, just setting the attack and delay, nothing else, then l2 in the master with a -3 ceiling. I don't want anything squashed. Now started out should I start with the loudest elements the kick and snare? roll them up till before they peak? then go down the line of instruments? All instruments are good quality and are pretty loud without compression except for one I may need to compress a bit. I haven't really mastered this part yet so any advice would be great. Also if I have l2 with a -3 ceiling would there be any reason for me to also have a regular compressor on the master and why?
