I'm about to insert a compressor/limiter into my audio chain. Here is my current configuration choices: U87/Senn416/RE20/Senn441->Fearn VT1/Daking MicPreOne->FireFace400->quad-core intel computer I presume the compressor/limiter comes after the preamp, but that's not the real question. As a long ranger; a V/O in a padded cell...how do I dial in the compressor when it is inline? The only method I can think of is to try a setting, record it, play it back and do it over and over again until I get a setting I like (and you know that I don't trust my ears). ...but I'd have to do that for every mic and every pre combination, correct? Is there an easier way?
