For a little compressor wine tasting, however, it needn't be totally scientific. Dial up a little tasty compression on a track that you think sounds good, with each box, level match as close as you can by ear, then print. The goal being getting the gist of the box's characteristic sound.

I would think a key in the sample making would be using only one box in line at a time to get a sense of the sonic footprint of the path.


Dana -

Maybe the best way to demonstrate would be to have a version of the original file and some of the different settings on the unicomp rather than compare to another comp?

That could be interesting. Have the reference track available as your control, running through the converter loop without the compressor? Say one compressed normally and another with the blend control, another with the side-chain filter engaged, etc.?

That's how we did our compressor shootout way back when. It was pretty consistent with how I experienced the various units in production.

Of coarse this sounds like a bunch of work...

I just finished working on a record with some really great guys. I'll see if they'll give permission to use the track for compressor wine-tasting purposes.
