I was hoping you'd sense that business opportunity.Clap

Another idea, a quick cheap course on the Live 9 as you get it sorted out. Sell it podcast style on Itunes.

EQ and compression that presents the boot drum its ability to stand out in a mix. starting with EQ, the best way to accentuate the lows and highs is to eliminate some low-mids. I'm a big believer in chopping as opposed to increasing EQ to accomplish a yearned effect.

Compression is very good to use. I have always had a problem with using compression to make my drums hit harder.

can anybody explain the difference in a limiter and a compressor please?? i understand fully the principles in the original post but how does limiting differ to removing peaks through compression?? also could anybody briefly describe the benefits of using a maximiser with the limiter turned on over a compressor and when this would be used???

Thanks again

compression enhances the signal...  the threshold ....this is a controlled way of compressing the peaks... and the gain is to compensate the reduction in volume

a limiter is more of a safe guard against unexpected peaks...and should be a last resort turning this up... uneducated persons who use this use this to drive up the loudness of the sound and kill the bottom end of a mix and causes distortion in the all the frequencies... basically making your ears bleed

yes, a limiter is a compressor, just with a brick wall setting, e.g. the ratio set to max/infinity:1. So, the signal should never go over the threshold.

A maximiser isn't so black and white. There are lots of different maximisers and they all behave differently, despite having the same basic aim. Some apply a lot more harmonics to the sound, so they could be considered to be more like saturators in some ways, whereas others a essentially more like simply limiters. I think some may also be expanders, which is like a reverse compressor, so when the signal falls below a certain level, it's turned up. This way, the overall loudness is increased rather than decreased as with a compressor, which needs to be turned down afterwards - the end result is again quite similar though as it ends up with a flatter signal. So, basically it depends on the maximiser!
