Hay people im a newbie in mixing so i need your help with compressing. I readed alot of books, and they have nice explanations how to eq, or use deley... but with compressors its a diferent story, they just say put comp. here and there and thats it, maybe they explain whot is ratio and all that but its still doesent mean nothing to me when i dont know how to use it... Can someone give me some compressor tips.. for exmp. how to compress drums (kick,snare,hats in hiphop). Yeah i know it can be explained that eazy but i need some tips how to set up compressor just to get me started... and when (if) ull give me some tips i would like to explain it to me why to put "this" to exmp. 2:1 or "that" to 4:1... Thank you. P.S. This is great forum and im very happy i found it, and sorry for my bad eng.
