Fate Compressor Uses?

Post by sfunk » Sat Oct 30, 2010 6:30 pm

I'm considering pulling the trigger. Downloaded the demo and like what it does on the 2 Bus. What are you guys using this for? Hows it sound on vocals, bass, drum bus, guitar bus?

Kick, drumbuss, some bass parts, also excellent on over-peaky acoustics. Actually, just engaging it flat does something very apparent to the sound.

cool. Can someone confirm the correct way to adjust amount of gain reduction? Threshold or input gain?

Treshold.
interesting. Its much more audible when threshold is used but the im sure i read the developer seemed to imply using the input gain, but this is much less audible-is that the desired effect?

This is for the preamp comp program. Read the manual.
(edit: also for the demo program)

It's always on my mix buss.

Sometimes it is too colorful, and sometimes is best to leave the kick drum out of the mix buss compression, but it does something magical.
