Trying to experiment with self-mastering using Bob Katz’s book.
He recommends using ‘parallel compression’ and upward expansion as an alternative to ‘maximizer’ plug-ins. So…
If anyone here is using these techniques, I’d appreciate some tips on how to set it up in WL. My specific questions are:
You need to make sure the parallel version is time-delayed so that the delay of the compressor is matched with the uncompressed track. Is there a way in WL to see the precise delay induced by the plug-in in samples?
What plug-ins can I use to do upward expansion?
