A Question on Compression
Are there Two Compressors to Cover all My Compression Needs?
I seek advice on compressors and limiters, de-essers, expanders? Instead of getting compressors of each, SSL (clean), Neve (fat, warm), Avalon (transparent), and others, I'd like to be able to settle on TWO compressor models that will give me range of compression to cover all my needs. I need compression/limiting that can be used for: “clean” SSL sound, avalon sound (“transparent”), and colored, warm, fat sound. So that is 3 general categories I want to cover with two compressor/limiter models. Also, is there a such thing as colored, clean, and transparent, when it comes to compression? Do compressors have similar descriptive classifications? And if I need gates in order to record drums or any other kind of instrument in my ADAT recording system, please let me know and try to squeeze it in to the TWO models to cover all my needs. Thanks.
?????SSL G series compressor, UA 2-LA , UA 1176, Neve 33069JD, et cetera?????
I'm thinking the UA 1176 and the avalon ad2044 will cover my bases. ?
