I promised ages ago that I would put together a "Webinar" on the use of Dynamics; namely Compression and Limiting. Most engineers I work with state "gee you use a lot of compression." Well yes, but no more than is absolutely necessary. That's not to say large amounts of gain reduction, just several stages of it. It's all about control first. Dynamics as an effect comes later and most often not at all. The Webinar will focus upon the 3 stages of dynamics usage: Recording, Track & Buss, Mix Buss. I'll do my best to have this up in a week - stay tuned.
