Mixing a loud song in a small room can make the compressor overcompress, so make sure you aren’t overflowing to get the results you want.If you want to tight the compression on a single frequency band, you can add a filter to the side of its Gain node because the Gain controls [the mean value of the signal] (VS Object/Show Drawing Mode). Alternatively, you can combine a frequency-manipulating plugin with the c6 to tailor the frequency response of the c6. If for example, you want to boost the bass a bit, try using a frequency-moving plugin such as the FabFilter Polaris.
As for mastering, the ML1 is a perfect tool for this purpose. For example, you can be very targeted to boost the bass when you boost the low mid frequency band but boost the other bands by a lesser amount.This way, you can control when the clip takes place and the increase in volume.
The ML4000 is, in my opinion, the best multiband compressor VST this year. It really makes a mix sound awesome, especially when you use more unusual compressing techniques. Furthermore, it doesn’t have a complicated parameter set, which can make this compressor a bit better than the other plugin on our list. When you are in need of a multiband compressor, there is no doubt that ML4000 is a perfect bet.
The most important thing with multiband is that you can listen to the frequencies that you’re compressing to. For example, if you’re compressing the low-mid frequencies of an acoustic guitar to reveal the high-mid frequencies, you’ll be compressing the original bass frequencies. Excess compression added on top is the result of the low-mid frequencies being entered into the already compressed signal. If you’re compressing and brightening solos, the whole band drops in frequency and needs to be recorded as such. Or what if you want to roll back the frequency of the bass at the beginning of a track? To achieve this, high and low cut frequencies would be cancelled through the overlapping signals. Creating a track with overlapping frequencies can be done in much the same fashion as high resolution audio tracks. d2c66b5586
