Re: Drum Buss, output levels

Originally posted by wallace
I was wondering, for those who are squashing their drum buss tracks and sending other tracks into the buss as well, how are you dealing with large peaks you're getting on the master fader (maybe 3 or 5 db)? Do you have to pull your master fader way down, and are you having to compress everything else to get it to come through in the mix?

Do you let your levels go into the red on individual tracks (not on the master fader)?
Drums should always be in the red for maximum output and S/N ratio
