There is Power Bass, Bass Boost, and True Base! :)

There is also Power Highs, and Absolute Highs.

As a general rule, should any of these NOT be mixed?

Is it a bad idea to turn ALL of these on at once? :lol:

You can use them together, just don't overdo it. They have different purposes!

Leading on from that question...

It seems there are some settings that use several things in tandem that don't seem like such a good idea, concept wise.

Take for example, the "Analog Pleasure" setting (by hvz ;)).

This setting uses AGC (in Stereo Tool it only decreases so there's a +20 db on the Preamp), along with the Compressor function of AGC, then adds *BOTH* Multiband compressors, as well as the Simple Clipper.

So... we are running Automatic Gain (itself a type of compression), plus THREE compressors, plus a limiter. Then on top of that, EQ,

Isn't that too much?

I guess I'm just trying to understand... what is the point or advantage of using THREE compressors?

:|


Here's an example of what that setting looks like; with so many compressors I would have expected it to completely crush it, but it didn't. (Probably the Declipper played somewhat of a role?)

(First .mp3 image is original file, second .wav is "Analog Pleasure".)
