RMS or Peak on Compressor


Recommended Posts

Hello. I understand the difference between RMS and Peak detection on the Logic compressor. e.g. would usually use peak for rapid drum transits etc. But I can't decide which to use or which sounds better in this situation:


Rolling 16th note bass lines, often with octave jumping.


I'm not trying just to level the sound but also tighten it up a bit so it is not quite so loose. Do you think RMS or Peak detection is best for this situation? Neither seems to be quite doing it but not sure.

Thanks 3ple. Will stick with that.


Well, that's my personal workflow. It doesn't mean it will fit your needs. I just like to limit my options in certain situations so I can focus more on the creative process, which is what I do most.
