musicguy7 Posted November 20, 2011 Share Posted November 20, 2011 When using Waves L2 or another limiter on the master bus, I notice sometimes, there is no attenuation/gain reduction, sometimes there is 3 db, sometimes there is 6 db, sometimes 9 db during a kick drum sample for example. Now what I'd like to know is how do you set limiters, so that you can specify a minimum volume/level for your track without having crazy amounts of gain reduction during the louder spikes such as kick drums that are very momentary. I don't care if for a few milliseconds there is 9 db gain reduction which goes against the generally accepted "3 db max of reduction". I want the overall waveform to thicken/become louder, and not have to set the threshold based on these momentary spikes of kick drum. Hopefully I'm explaining myself clearly...
