Mixing tips and tricks: Dynamics

Trust me, effective use of dynamics processors is really going to take your mixes to the next level. While it may take a bit of practice and you might not hear the subtleties at first, stick with it, because if there really is a big secret of mixing, it's hidden in the dynamics. Here are some of my favorite tips, tricks and considerations when working with compressors, limiters, gates and other dynamics processors. So, first off, every compressor sounds a little bit different and reacts to the signal differently. Even with the exact same Attack and Release ratio and threshold settings, two different compressors will likely sound very different.

So, we have heard the BF76, the 1176 emulation as well as the DigiRack Dyn 3 and there are tons of third- party compressors out there. Each one is going to sound different. Sometimes the differences are subtle, sometimes they are not. Why? Generally, this is by design. So a compressor's detection circuit and its amplification or gain make ...
