Anybody have any suggested compressor settings.
I use a VU meter to determines those values..
Depends on what you want to do.
Normally, I would set it this way:
Release: 1 sec
Threshold: What ever you need to light it up during heavy playing. Usually 10-20 dB down.
Gain: whatever you need to make up the lost gain.
Ratio 6:1 or better
Release: 2 sec
Threshold: 0 to +4 dB depending on where the compressor is in the chain
I like light compression myself, so I will use 2.5:1 or so with 150mS of Attack time, and 0.5 sec release time.
