2 Compressors

Do you often use 2 compressors in your effects chain.


I heard that DC soemtimes uses 11 and a half in a row.





But seriously, is it common for you to use more than one compressor.

Yes, here too! But usually not for the motivation of "making it louder", unless my arm has been twisted, but rather for different jobs at different thresholds in different parts of the spectrum.

By the way, I can tell you that a major analog manufacturer has a design on the drawing board of an analog compressor with TWO thresholds, and the option to do expansion above the top threshold, or compression above it, and either expansion or compression below the bottom threshold. That would be "two dynamics processors in one." Years ago i think EMT designed a dual-slope unit as well.

Well, tell them to get on it and release it soon (no pun intended)!

I've never used 11 and a half in a row before...

But multiple compressors, certainly.

Bob are you using sometimes a multiband compression into an upward compression technik ?? or what can give you the motivation to choose this solution ??
The first time i ve used it ; i was so surprise how much the upward compression was nice tool when manipulated correctly !!

Thanks
