Lives for gear

We should not forget that the average classical listener cannot cope with a wide dynamic range without clipping the peaks, and I would rather entrust gain reduction to GENTLE compression (1.17 is so slight you would likely not identify it without being told) or parallel compression. It is all in the threshold and knee.

Let's recall what Duke Ellington said (about something else but it applies nonetheless)-- "If it sounds good, it IS good."
