    Hey RO'ers, I need some help understanding the basics of compression, limiters, and gates. I have been producing and recording music for my own indie label and I just need some more detailed clarification on the above. When is the best time during the recording process to use limiters and gates? I usually use them on vocals when I am in the mixing process. When is/or what is the best way to use a compressor? I usually use compression after the vocals are done and sometimes I use it on some of the instrument tracks, such as bass, guitars, etc. I am still a newbie to all of this, only having been doing the producing bit for almost a year. I would appreciate any tips that any of you may throw my way. Check us out at http://www.battlegroundrecordz.com Thanks for any advice on the above mentioned gear.

    There are Sooooooooooo many post here that cover these subjects plus all the informaiton on the WWW. Suggest doing a search of this Web Board first then the WWW. If your questions are not answered and you have specific questions I am sure there are people on this board that would be only too glad to help.

    What you are basically asking is "I want to know everything you know about (pick subject) which no one really has time to answer and you have to be willing to do some homework as well.
