Just a bit more on additive compression :-)

Hi Tchad

Additive compression seems to be a great part of your sound... I have just a couple more questions on the subject:

1 On records that you both record and mix, is there any system to wether you apply the additive compression during tracking or during mixing?
2 Are there any instruments that you normally would'nt additive compress ? If yes, why?

Thanks again so much :-)

Best regards
Thomas

With tape I would monitor the OH compression but not print it if I knew we needed tracks. In that case I'd recall it in the mix. With PTools I can print all from the start.
Mainly drums, I compress gtrs and vocal normally because they don't seem to suffer the same loss of air, dynamics and width drums do when you smash them.
