I totally know what you mean about trying to compress dance, rap, RnB stuff thru any normal compressor. Right off the bat the Kik drum starts to push back and pump the mix. Ive had some luck with multiband stuff, just compressing everything above like 200 on it... but cant say I remember it really making anyone jump for joy... verrrry questionable.

Any folks or mastering guys have any experiences trying to compress bottom heavy music like Dance HipHop Rap etc and keeping the mix from losing it, and pumping like Arnold at Golds Gym?

PS Guys Im in Delaware with a new Apple Laptop and Im trying to learn how to use it without hurling it thru my sisters window, while still keeping some kind of flow goin here
