Riding faders in DAW with inserted compressors
This is a much discussed topic, but I have not seen this concern raised. So, I have a question for people riding faders while using a compressor in a DAW insert:
When you ride the fader, which was originally designed for volume control, do you simultaneously have your hand on the compressors gain? Because if you're raising the fader with a compressor insert- the compressor is just squashing it more- which is defeating the purpose, isn't it?
If someone could help clarify this, I'd appreciate it.
