Talking Distressor Question

Kevin,

What do you use your distressor's on?


Do you use them when tracking or just for mixing?





Thanks So Much for making your self available for questions.

Ricky,

Pretty much everything, especially if you keep the ratio low and get 3-5 db of gain reduction.

For the more radical stuff, go to the Limit ration and experiment.

They really sound great even @1:1

Kevin,

Very Cool....This is my first "real" outboard compressor. I normally use my various plug ins and I have found myself using the distressor on everything I track.

I am saving up for a second one.

Thanks for the settings.......

God Bless,

Ricky

Ricky,

You might also want to check for some of the recommeded settings in the booklet that comes with the unit. Its a good start until you get used to iy.

Kevin,
Thanks for all the great info. Do you use a Brit mod or the standard issue? How do you feel about the brit mod in general? Thanks.

Actually I only have the standard issue because thas was what was available when I purchased them. I do remember hearing the brit model and i liked it but i needed to save for preschool so the gear had to take a backseat for a while....
