Compression and Peak Limiting of the Master Bus
- [Voiceover] Okay, so when you wanna deal…with sheer volume for your mix.…And, that is, you have a client,…or even, you yourself want your song to sound…louder than anything else that's ever come before it.…Or, (chuckles) will come again after it.…There's some things you have to do besides…just piling on limiters at the master bus.…Which can, eventually,…adversely affect the sound of your mix.…So, let's get reacquainted with the band "Rumours",…the song "Don't Fight the Fallen"…and we're gonna discuss some…issues of this song in a moment.…
♫ La la la la la la la…♫ I just want something to be real…♫ The melody that I can feel…♫ I need to reinvent the wheel…♫ And let you know who you are…♫ What do you know about struggling…♫ What do you know about where I been…♫ What do you know about anything…♫ Don't you know the only way to fly…♫ Is to fall…♫ And don't you know the only way to climb…♫ Is to crawl…- [Voiceover] So, I wanted to let that get to the chorus.…
Thanks for listening everyone.…Now, you notice here on this master bus,…
