Something I’ve been spending a LOT of time over the years. I figured there might be a more ‘automatic’ way to do this.
I will often have a track where there are transients (and I mean ultra short spikes) that are -crazy- loud. I usually go through the track and manually chop them down with Spectrum Editor. It takes a lot of time, but it really helps make any output compression work -way- better.
Is there any way to automate this process in WL? ie. is there a way for WL to automatically detect these short peaks (like a snare hit) using a formula and reduce the volume of just those transients throughout the track. It should have a very fast attack and a very short release -and- only within a frequency range so that it doesn’t affect the surrounding material.
Is there anything like that in Wavelab?
