The next topic that I want to touch on is the use of a compressor and limiter for post-processing M:S. I see 2 ways.
1. DAW&VST. Digital post-processing of the mix
I record my lives in Ableton 10. For digital post-processing of the mix on the master channel, I use “RoughRider 3” from the developer company “Audio Damage”. Next in the processing chain is the default limiter that is part of Ableton. The result pleases me.
Guitar stereo pedal / large rack instrument. Hardware audio post-processing
To begin with, it is worth saying that I was considering buying an “Electro Harmonix Platform Compressor/Limiter”. This is a mobile solution, the sound will be better without a computer at any time, the hair will become silky, and the skin will be velvety It is also worth looking in the direction of rack sound processing.
The question is as follows. Is it even worth bothering with the purchase of an apartment compressor/limiter? What do you think about this?
