one thing i'd love to get my hands on is a compression matrix....

......imagine a matrix with, say, 24 stereo inputs.........this should be enuff to accomadate the main elements of a mix.......kick, snare, BV's, guitars etc etc up to...... 24

each (stereo) channel has a built in Distressor heh

after the Distressor heh, each channel has a stereo output

each channel has 23 send knobs!

each send goes to the sidechain input of each channel's Distressor heh

the idea is that you could set up layers of compression with certain sounds being given priority or space via the ducking of other sounds.......

......as an example, you could have lead vox ducking BV's, but BV's would duck guitars, while kick ducks BV's and guitars etc etc........

pure fantasy that this would ever be built..........maybe in software?

waddayallreckon?.........useful or overkill?
