    In certain situations it would be necessary to have a limiter before a compressor. Think about a very dynamic vocal, for example. Right now, it makes no sense to use one of those wonderful deep plugin compressors, that change ratio with input level on a channel like this, although these compressor models would be perfect otherwise.

    About 18 month ago, there was a feature request to be able to use deep plugins in the FX rack. I would rather prefer switching the gate to a compressor/limiter, as long as inserting something from the FX rack adds more latency to a channel. The “standard” peak/RMS compressor (which are not standard at all to my ears) would be totally sufficient for that task.

    Any thoughts?

    maybe you should change your ears…?

    the deep plugins are made for this, just pick the right one

    Probably you didn’t get my question, or I was unable to ask it correctly… ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    I would like to get 2 compressors on a row, absolutely nothing wrong with my ears ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I do not really understand the question either.
    For example, you can use two Dyn8s and one compressor per channel. That would even make three compressors – and the gate would still be usable.

    Dyn8 is indeed a idea I haven’t thought about thoroughly. If you can’t see the obvious….
    Forced out of this business for 8 month and I forgot everything, sigh

    Do not be sad.
    Next year we will surely be able to practice a lot again – live! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    In the meantime you can also use multi-track recordings as VirtualSoundcheck to stay a little bit fit. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yamaha has had this option for years, I would love the option to switch between a gate or a comp.

    You can activate three compressors and one gate per channel.
    I think if that’s not enough, you have a very special problem.

    Maybe we should have a talent button built in then?

    I rather want an expander instead of the optional second compressor as an replacement for the gate.

    Expander has been on the wish list for a long time.

    But as far as I know, there has not yet been a request for an additional gate per channel.

    Sorry, I read it again.
    Of course he doesn’t want a second gate, which would also be stupid, but a second compressor in the channel.

    I think the solution with the Dyn8 in the insert is the right way.

    But only if the Dyn8 is the right flavour you are looking for. Not always the case for me…

    Well, of course you have an extremely wide range of possibilities with Dyn8. You don’t always need that, sometimes something simple is enough.
    But you don’t have to use all the functions in Dyn8 ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You can also simply design it and then save it as a preset.

    flavour not equals possibilities

    Probably you didnโ€™t get my question, or I was unable to ask it correctlyโ€ฆ

    I wasn’t able to understand how you mean it…;-)

    the solution would be to have both dynamic modules equipped with the same functionality
    gate, ducker, expander and the available compressor models ๐Ÿ˜€
