Awesomeness Thats why I am a beast at recording and mixing now. Thanks Joe
Dude, lovin’ the look of the Studio One V3 GUI. Nice! Do you find it easier on your eyes?
Yeah it feels a little more professional if that makes sense? slicker feeling
Reaper’s compressor, “ReaComp” that comes with Reaper since version 1.00 of 2004 have this feature of “listening” just to part of the audio delimited for a lpf & hpf. Cheers
Oh Reaper…you seem so cool. 🙂
The Melda MCOMPRESSOR also offers a sidechain HPF – I believe it is free. Add also the Logic compressors let you use any number of EQ-like settings for the sidechain – HPF, LPF, parametric, shelf, etc. Lots of room for experimenting.
For my live performance it doesn’t make much of a useful change, but I can clearly “hear” where it would be a change for the better, and simpler than a full-on multi-pressor.
Nifty trick – I can certainly make it work, but without much value on my live Bluegrass.
Notes: All of the Logic Pro X compressors have a sidechain where you can set frequencies, Q, etc. with a ‘listen’ mode etc. Excellent.
My newest tools – Slate VBC – has HPF sidechain filters on the FG-Red and FG-MU compressors. It sort of sounds like what I get with a multi-band compressor, but actually easier to control. Thanks for the tip.
Switching my current ‘go-to’ buss compressor to the FG-Red and other Focusrite-style compressors. At least for this week’s submission to the lords of performance…
Side chain filter! I definitely don’t have one of those or a multiband compressor, so I’d probably try isolating the kick drum range in one track and then compressing the other part in another track.
Oh, the cool stuff y’all have! I really need to get away from Nero.
Hey Joe, interesting video, thank you! I’m interested to know if you mix with a sub woofer or not? Thanks for what your doing 🙂
Nope I don’t.
I use this technique with BX Octo comp which has a similar facility as the Studio One comp. Works a treat as you show when the Bottom end is trying to control the process.
