I thought this was an indie rock forum?  Are seether really indie rock?  Am I at the wrong meeting?   I'm sure the record sounds great, but I'll never be able to listen to it due to the horrible songwriting on any single they've ever pooped out.

So you're unable to learn tips and techniques from other styles or genres of music?

That's too bad.

Like the rest of you, I'd love to hate those guys because of everything their music stands for.

The problem is this:  They're very friendly, unassuming people, with a totally workman-like attitude to what they do, and no illusions about what it is.

Still doesn't mean I buy their records, just saying...

It could happen to you.

Very true.  The few times I have had pleasure to meet (and do a little work for) them they were very cool, very friendly, and very grounded.  Nice "normal" guys all around.

If I'm ever bashing... it's the editing that I'm not too fond of.

I know there no rules but do you find most mastering engineers like or dislike when you compress the stereo mix? Or it just varies.

Thanks. BTW, I don't think I conveyed that I was addressing the collective 'you' that views this thread and certainly did mean to imply anything negative about your skills or work.  

(I think another recording forum has me being extra polite or tippy toeing around).

Generally, I've worked without buss compressors, but, I just tried the UAD Neve33609 and this plug may have just changed my mind.

I did a couple of mixes and there are a couple of observations :
Kick and bass tightened right up. Solid. Beefy. (I think next time I'll mix with the Neve33609 already inserted instead of applying it after) Beautifully warm overall. I like the limiter section quite a bit. You get a real nice firm ceiling without any ducking or pumping.

The other important thing I noticed is that things didn't fall apart. The mix was still very dimensional. Front to back was still pretty much front to back and reverb tails still sounded very natural. Not the "in-yer-face" flattened shite that I detest so much.

A big thumbs up on this plug.

+1.  That compressor plugin is unreal.

I agree with you completely.  Warm, tight, beefy.

I've been using the Massey CT4 plugin lately and am liking it.

At very subtle settings (1 - 3 db of reduction at most) it definately tightens things up, while remaining transparent.

It seems to add a subtle extra something to the midrange that I like.

I'm a big fan of Buss compression, but I run it in parallel (kind of) as I use a Safesound Dynamics Toolbox that has a "blend" knob on it. So I overcompress it first, then blend it back to where it sounds good. I'm a fan, but I overdid it the first time I used it and got a wrist slap from the ME. I've also used, and enjoyed, distressors on the 2buss.
