I've spent hours trying to convert our preset (from essentially 8.21) to 8.40 using all the new features, but can't get it close enough to the same sound.
I thought I had it close enough & put it to air, then came the (less than desirable) comments from other staff, & the station manager came & said not close enough, I don't like it, put the old settings back on air.
I would like to use feedback mode 2, take the compressors out of "legacy mode" & move from "Peak to RMS".
I obviously missed something though, because the sound lost depth (sounded thin) & it also sounded over driven, all the levels on the meters were very close to the original (pre conversion), & none were in the red or indicating anything being overdriven or too loud, even though some of the settings were different.
Even though it sounded overdriven, what came out the end was very clean & clear, just a thinner sound & obviously different enough to cause a stir.
Any helpful tips for what I need to change & by roughly how much?
I've followed Wes's threshold recommendations (but had to move them a bit more than he did).
