I meant actually the high threshold/low ratio combination producing minimal compression on the second level of processing...
My set-up doesn't allow the attack/release + a knee adjustments on the mastering compressor,just for the input one so anything I do has to work in terms of those as a given preset sets them...
Appreciate again the discussion of these specific aspects of compressing the mix in terms of overall dynamic effect and how to get things to have a relatively transparent result where things sound as unprocessed as possible while actually using quite a bit of it...

Another thing I'd be interested in in the context of the overall topic focus is how different threshold/ ratio combinations affect things I.e.high threshold/low ratio setting up minimal compression,low threshold/high ratio =maximum effect etc
I have some info about this but finding out about actual peoples experience w/it would continue to help me develop a sense of things..in terms of general principles to apply independent of specific input dB/amount of compression resulting in x dB of gain reduction etc...

I remember from looking at the C4 manual that instead of threshold adjustment you specify range(I.e.amount of dB reduction)/ratio ..which sets up the threshold automatically if I'm understanding this ...
