I’m seeing a lot of conflicting advice about using compression while recording. Some swear by it while others say it’s completely unnecessary with 24‑bit recording and modern converters. Where do you stand on this?
The 535 Diode Bridge Compressor module is based on the dynamics circuit found in the Shelford Channel, the channel strip RND released last year that was itself something of a Neve greatest hits collection.
In my hardware-based setup, with my TC electronics Triple*C compressor, is it possible to do the kind of limiting on a full mix where you end up with a waveform that is levelled off at the top and bottom, 'brick wall'-style?
