no red light here either ...

i am tracking -14/-18 dbfs so that leaves enough headroom ( most times ) on the individual tracks . if i receive really " hot " tracked parts i am ending up using the trim feature to bring the levels down .

if there are what you call peakes in the material i am gonna use em as a reference and build around it levelwise .

using compression is a matter of taste . overprocessing can easily change the attitude of the whole song or material . even if its just a " few db " of compression on every single track .

according to drumbus compression :

i start most of the time 0db on the original -10db on the compressed drum buss ( if required ) .

hope that helps ?
