What compressor did Wu-Tang use?
Hey, first post,
I'm normally an electronic producer, but, just going back to some old school hip-hop like Wu-Tang, in particular C.R.E.A.M., and boy does that song has some vintage cream on it!
I mean that is the sound no doubt everyone is chasing today- that fat, analogue tape type track. So what compressors do you reckon they used back then (93-94)... the 1176/LA-2A? It can't all come from using tape can it? I've heard plenty of hip-hop from that time and they don't have that dirt especially on the bass/low end in general.
The sub bass/bass has a gorgeous filter on it... I so want to identify their equipment/ recreate it today
