YOU have a lot of space to work with and dynamics will make your tracks kill over compressed to hell shit. On the other hand if you are just doing pub style things on little yorkville powerd speakers then a little more compression might help. Still don't over do it.
I find for the big sound I work a lot deeper in the Freq range but you also need to keep it clean. IF possible use a good mastering engineer who specializes in that sound.
Less comp though will sound louder when it hits the limiters than a squashed to hell mix. Cleaner too.
I recently purchased a pair of KRK V8II's. For full range dynamic monitors, do these fit the bill at all? Also, I have a 10 x 10 square foot studio. How should I go about treating the wals if I wanna sound good in a club?
