My go-to compressors
October 13, 2014
Hey y'all, these are the compressor plugins I use on every track!!1
As always, leave a comment, hit me up with any questions!
The PuigChild 670 plugin, modeled after the Fairchild, ends up on almost every track to add warmth and character, even if it's not doing any compression.
The CLA-2A plugin will normally find its way onto layers that have a higher frequency. Something similar to a vocal line, such as violins, high piano lines, or anything I want to bring further into the foreground.
From the Australian company, CRYSonic, this is their take on a transient master. Which I normally end up using as a kind of limiter with the added feature of restoring some of the transience that you may have lost with compression. (I normally use this on the Master Bus)
Another one of Chris Lord-Alge's signature plugins that was modeled after the 1176 compressor, this will usually find its way onto drums, percussions, and sometimes bass due to its attack and release time.
The API 2500 is another compressor that ends up on the Master Bus. This is because of the compression ratios, attack, release, and the tone controls, which allows it to be more flexible without doing much compression.
