So I was so interested in the 1612 Tubes I got to play with... I started a hybrid design. The concept is a vari-mu style compressor using the 1612 as the front end after a Jensen XFMR. I am thinking of then running LA2 style buffer and driver amplifier into a Jensen output XFMR. But the side chain will be solid state and use either a LOG amp or a THAT audio engine.. Sort of a complex blend of 50's tech with more modern tech...
The panel below is the feature set that I would want...I interested to hear your thoughts or wants for a compressor like this...
So this is my first post. Long time forum viewer, newly active poster.
Let's say I had 2 compressors in series with the following parameters:
Threshold = -5dB
Ratio = 2: 1
Attack = 50 ms
Release = 40 ms
Would there be any difference (technical / sonic / theoretical) if I had a single compressor configured as below?
Threshold = -10 dB
Ratio = 4: 1
Attack = 100 ms
Release = 80 ms
Thanks in advance.
My first video of 2018. I had a little fun jamming a song...
This Back to basics : audio recording software - Compressors video, explain what is a compressor and what the common settings do.
The video starts with the video clip of a song about compressor.
Nothing serious just having fun.. . But following the video clip, you'll get a glance of how a compressor works.
I always value your inputs, so please comment !
I don't own a good brickwall limiter/maximizer in my drawer of plugins. And I know I can get one for $29 from Waves. But I own Waves Renaissance Compressor and was wondering how to build one, if possible with a few compressors chained together or something. I was inspired to try brickwall limiting to my music by a couple of sources. I play bluegrass acoustic music.
Hey I'm pretty new to this and i've just started using some compressors on some guitar and drum tracks i've recorded I don't know where to start. Please help! I usually just set the threshold low and turn and turn up the input til i hear it working. Btw, if I want to limit the kick drum i just set the ratio above 10:1? I heard that somewhere. I really need to know how to use these things.
I need the knowledge! please!
What compressors with attitude or vibe do you use?
I have a low-end home studio that I am building (in my garage), and am looking for a decent compressor to add to my collection of equipment. Unfortunately, I am painfully ignorant when it comes to audio compression, gates, and filters. I record mostly vocals, and unfortunately my recordings are ugly uncompressed audio and has a slight hiss to it. Word on the street is that a hiss can be filtered out by a gate or filter, and a decent compressor can also help.
