Attack - Release - Settings For Limiter
Do you have any tips on finding the right Attack and Release settings using a Limiter when Mastering ?:)

I would love some insight on this as well...

I don't use much limiting during mastering, but my favorite analog limiter is the NTP-179/120 which had a 200ms attack and anywhere from a 0.1 to .25 recovery.

I use slow attacks to let the transients pass through. Doesn't squash but feels huge.
