And it’s NOT just using the built-in Pre gain, or typical other gain staging porocedures I have seen.
While I think Dom makes some excellent suggestions from the start, at 9:28 is what I have never attempted by using event based volume envelope. It’s been there for a long time. I’m not sure why I never thought of this so I’m sharing.
Event based volume envelope, then use the stuff we all know…clip gain, pre-gain and automation.
