Hey there. In the near future my pal and i are planing to play a live set.
We have a pretty big setup with synthstrom deluge, digitakt, digitone, microfreak, minilogue xd and hydrasynth going into soundcraft 12mtk mixer. Outs of mixer go into FMR RNC and then to PA.
The question is, how should i set up the RNC (especially when it comes to attack and release)? Our set has a few dynamic ups and downs (sometimes kicks are louder in one track, snares a bit louder in another etc). I tried my best to balance all samples and synths out throughout the whole set but still it feels like there is a slight but noticable dynamic difference. And well, i’m kind of a newbie when it comes to compressors. I know how everything works and what it does, but didn’t listen enough to it to understand what is a nice “glue” for a track and where is the point of “too much”.
So the goals are:
- make song transitions sound smoother
- add some depth and glue things up
- make things sound more touched up so the live set wont sound weak compared to mastered dj tracks (at least partialy)
I would love to hear your opinions on this topic.
