I probably should have said i don't like the "overuse" of compression. I honestly still can't seem to get a handle on 2-buss compression. I try it, then bypas it and like that better. I have been studying some Chris Lord Algae mixes lately and am amazed at what he does with compression. He is truly a master. I played in a lot of live bands, and quickly learned that dynamics were a major tool in entertaining an audience. I also learned from Ron Fair and Christina that when a singer gets loud, let them be loud! That is still hard for me to accept sometimes. If you check around I have outlined my division of compression into 3 categories before. Wanna guess? (I know, I know this isn't grade school, but I'm wiped. 2 all niters this week.
