Thanks for the (very good) explanation groundcontrol.

So let's think about this situation:

I'll grab your example:
You put a compressor on the master channel to compress the whole mix that is peaking at -1db in PT and has a high average level.

At what value would you advise that I should calibrate a 192?
Will a compressor work well in the (+10db to +17db) range? wouldn't it add distortion to the signal?
What is the best range for a compressor to work?

Would a mastering engineer that uses analog equipment with PT calibrate a 192 to something like -6db?

Thanks.


Sorry for my english.
