54 - MAKE A CHEAP COMPRESSOR SOUND GOOD        

From: Spud
Email: Out Yonder
Date: 04-Apr-99


This is a bit of a no brainer, but I was really surprised by how well it works. If you have a cheap stereo compressor that sounds like crap when applying more than 3-5 db worth of gain reduction, try this - Route your signal into one side, applying soft compression (2-4 db), then route it back into the OTHER channel, again giving soft compression, at slightly different attack/release times. It takes a bit of fiddling to get a great sound this way, but once you get better at it, you can emulate the smooth sound of much better, more expensive units. I've done this with an Alesis 3630 and a Behringer Composer, and it works wonders.
