I'm recording for myself, vocals and acoustic guitar. It's slow mellow music, with a theory of a deadman type voice. Wondering what compressor to start with... I'm planning to purchase: api512c pre amps Blue blueberry mic for vocals OR NEUMANN 49 or 67 . Blue Woodpecker for my acoustic guitar. now i have to choose a compressor... I dont have to worry about fast attack so much, since it's mellow acoustic music i'm working with but i have an aggressive voice.. I read online that the order from smooth to fast is: la 2a la 610 la 3a 1176. what does "smooth" mean really? i understand fast is more for rock alternative ... i'm thinking smooth as mellow acoustic music - which is what i would be recording. also i've read that the 1176 is much more versatile, that it can have that slow attack and also a fast, the la 2a or 3a is not as versatile. i've read i should start with the 1176 and add on la 2a or 3a after if needed. what do you think i should start with?
