I'm using titanium 3 and 1 band for a Long Time now.
The 1 Band Version often in a mix.
Works Great on drums, i love it on snare!

The 3 Band i'm using on every Master!
And believe me, my Master are very good and very loud without ugly squashed sound and distortion.

For me titanium is one of the best vst Emulator comps on the market maybe the best when you use it right.

So when you use it on a Master Try this:

Split the bass band not to high if You Need punch.
Split the mid Band high! I'm always Splitting at 4700 Hz
Listen to vocals and snare if you need punch.
Try a higher Ratio in the mid Then bass and highband.

And Trust your ears.

When i Master my own Tracks i Never compress more than a Ratio of 2!
Maybe 2 in the mids but bass and highband Never a lot more than 1.5 Ratio
Attack and release are always set for punch.
Of Course this is only my way but i works so Try it out.

Can't be fast - at least not very fast. You should let the transient and the initial part of the sound to go through (where the attack/punch is). Release should also not be too slow as you don't want to still be compressing when you reach the next transient (drum hit). Obviously the attack would be a matter of taste and the release tempo/beat dependant.
