I have been trying out some different settings for master buss compression on a recent project and it has me thinking so I thought I'd ask here to see what you guys think and/or do with your work. In the past, I've seen some people post up screen shots of their settings for a master buss compressor and in general I find that I favor a slower attack and auto release, whereas a lot of dudes use a faster attack and release. Most of the work I do is metal based (obviously) with a lot of double kick. I tend to use the Waves SSL bus comp plugin and usually have the attack at 10 or 30 with an auto release. I like the punch and depth it brings in while preserving the attack more so than "evening" things out with a quicker attack. Are there "general" guidelines (that you've learned about or created for yourself) for master buss compression you guys find yourself using? If so, care to share?
