Sidechain-compression on Mix-Bus
Hi Rob,

I've read already that you often use sidechain-compression on your Mix-bus - triggered by the kick.

Do you limit this compression to a certain frequency-band?

If yes, what would the affected spectrum be - only bass or even the mids?

How much dbs you usually take off?

Thanks in advance!

i changed my mixing a bit, now i prefer to work with plugins like VOLUMESHAPER, i can have more control over the content.. and i don't sedition the full signal anymore...

its also great to use this on ex return to clean up your mix.
