I'm a compression n00b but I'm learning. This is about overall volume when using a compressor. Please know that I searched on TB before posting this but did not find suitable questions or solutions. I have the Keeley Bassist, using it mildly: 3:1 or 4:1 ratio, threshold at around -30 or -20 (between 10:00 and 12:00) and use gain as the volume control. Band plays a softer ballad: volume is fine. Band starts rocking: I need more volume. With the compressor I can't just "play harder." How would you go about adjusting overall volume to match the band's volume? Adjusting the gain knob on the pedal for every tune is impractical. Do I just need to learn to control it with the bass's volume? This seems less effective when going thru the compressor. I'm thinking of a volume pedal somewhere in the chain, probably towards or at the end. What do you think?
