Opening track for look at the world. This mix is a real pain.
I want all the tracks to have an avarage of 9 dB dynamic range.
Uptill now it worked fine but this one just wont be contained.
Mostly the drums spoil the fun, and now I ended up with two compressors and a brick wall on the endbus.
Together they constantly push the mix down with an average of 10 dB.
The drums bus before the endbus has also two compressors. One fast one eating up 7 dB and a slow one, constantly pushing it 8 dB down.
In my opinion this is just severe shredding and crushing. But it’s the only way to get the track in line with the rest.
How do you do this? Is it normal in electronic/dance/pop music to feed compressors that much. I am on a learning curve here.
