Hey everyone, Hope your mix week is well. I found this article on subject and thought I would share: http://brownbagazine.blogspot.com/2010/11/compressor-history.html Which got me thinking and searching (with no luck) "who the first mixing engineer was to successfully use mix/stereo/mono/2 bus compression , what year that was, and which compressor they were using?" Following that, who was the first to mix-into a mix bus compressor? Total guess but possibly the first application of using a compressor during mixing WAS to strap it over the entire mix because they maybe only had one compressor to use, and that's what the radio stations were doing. Thought this was interesting and I'm interested in you guys chiming in .
