The Sound of Compression in Metal

Compression is an integral part of any Heavy Rock and Metal Recording and Mix.

But how does it actually sound?

In this video, I provide multiple examples of Compression in application to Mixing Heavy Metal Drums and Guitar. I use digital and analog compression – plugins by Universal Audio, Kush Audio and Acustica Audio, as well as my Audioscape D-Comp. SSL Bus Compressor, 1176, API 2500, Kush Novatron, Teletronix LA-3A, Fairchild 670.

Which one do you like the most and the least?
