As the the topic says. The standard compressor has the make up gain last in the processing chain, after the dry/wet mix.
I’d prefer to first dial in the compression, then set the make up gain so it matches the unprocessed audio. And last, choose the mix (if/when I want parallel compression).
You can achieve the same results with compressor as it works now. But setting the mix amount in % to try to match the dry side that is, say 6dB louder is weird for me. I’d rather have known levels on the both the wet and the dry side, and then set the mix.
Am I alone on this?
