Here for the gear

Waves SSL Comp or Waves API2500 Comp with 1.5 to 2 db of gain reduction with a low Ratio (2 on SSL, 1.5 on API)
Softube Passive EQ +3db/60hz, +3db/10KHz
or T-Racks Pultec boost @ 30Hz an 10Khz on slower material.
You have to "mix in it" so you need less compression and EQing on single tracks ...
Some people might call the doctor, but for me it works.

RNC for only a tiny bit of glue. And yes, it does work for mixbus use.

Usually its a Hammer EQ followed by an STC-8 doing very little compression. Just love the subtle cohesiveness of Crane Song even when it's barely working... the Hammer EQ is usually adding a bit of top end.

Get your mix sounding how you want it with nothing on the 2 bus, peaking between -6 & -12 db. Leave the 2 bus for the mastering phase. Just my opinion, and the opinion of most MEs.

For the few times I thought and felt a project was at the point of needing tools on the 2-bus, the usual suspects were:
  1. Eventide H8000FW (for D-to-A conversion) -->
  2. Alan Smart C2 (2:1, 4dB thresh, slow atk, fast rel, HP sidechain) "just a kiss" -->
  3. CraneSong HEDD192 "touch of tone" -->
  4. Mastering Engineer

That said, sometimes Sonnox Dynamics if it is all ITB.

It was nice being able to rent things (C2, HEDD). thumbsup


cheers,
Ian

Not sure if Waves has a version of the Fairchild. Never been a big Waves fan.

lately nothing

since I have got a feel for how it will sound when its compressed/saturated later the production without it seems more transparent to me.

SSL bus comp from the MX4 card. 30ms attack, auto release, about a decibel of reduction. Sounds gluey!
