Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help. .I usually record live instruments, guitar and bass etc. . but decided to try my hand at electronic music, all software synths and drum machines etc..
But I came to a problem, I need help with the compression af the tracks,
at the moment I have Cakewalk with about 17 channels of audio and each sound on a different track, eg, snare on track 1, bass drum -track 2 and so on..
What would be the best way to mix it down? and what kind of settings of compression would i need to use?
thankyou, from a dumb...but learning bloke
