josephwoebeus Posted April 16, 2011 Share Posted April 16, 2011 Hi there, I'm currently running Logic Pro 8. I've gotten in the habit of dumping a multi-band compressor on the master bus of pretty much all my songs. my master bus looks something like (1)STEREO expander (2) MBC (3) reverb. Anyways, when I put the compressor on the master track (after messing with the values inside the track), the songs levels get higher than -3db, and I was wondering what the best means of handling this issue are. Now, keep in mind these are not drastic changes I'm looking for, simply a 2 or so drop in dB to have the tracks master ready Here are some things I am looking on trying 1) Simply turn down the Output 1-2 bar on the mixer 2) Place a gain plug-in on the last spot on the master bus 3) Place a limiter on the last spot on the master bus Thanks! EDIT: I should also add that I want to take the route that is least intrusive for a masterer. I'm leaning on simply being able to turn down the Output 1-2, but I'm afraid that it will cause quality issues with a compressor on the master track.
