compression presets just don`t work, unlike chorus, or delays or something
Compression is entirely input content dependant, so presets just aren`t applicable, and I`m not sure if you can learn anything from them in terms of how to use compression.


I truly believe you - that's also why I will be very willing to pay for some instructions ;) - It's not that I don't try to adjust at all, but more the realization that the compressor can definitely do something more than what I'm capable off, when I try to dial the compressor in from "neutral".

What I'm trying to say is that I'm shitty with the compressor!

I read in a couple places Robert Babicz said he uses very little compression if any at all in his productions.... I dont know if he meant in the composition phase or mastering or both etc.

I saw an interview of him the other day and he was bragging about this self-made compressor... Wait, I see, if I can find it

I think it's this one...

I haven't listened to Babicz stuff in years,
but I clearly remember seeing a video where he was showing how he some times used 2 or 3 compressors in series to get a certain sound, and how he was saying that no plugin or combination of plugins could ever get close...

And honestly, if you listen to his music,
or at least the part I once heard,
I think it's obvious he uses compression a lot.

He clearly does though, and he loves it too, in mastering as well as production, though he tries to keep the mastering open so he doesn`t push anything hard, but he uses some pretty expensive compressors and runs them in series so nothing gets worked too hard, he uses them creatively as we have mentioned in this thread, for the harmonic changes they make.

Speaking of Robert, I like an interview a while ago where he talks about how presets disables music production or something like that.

It's taken me over a decade and I'm just starting to wrap my head around it.

Now I've bought some gear I see how absolutely necessary it is.

I think I use it on everything that isn't a sample.
