  • Compression Help

    I've always read compression is very important for hip-hop and when i spit theres some points where it sounds like i accidently moved away from the mic like it gets kinda quiet and doesnt fit with the rest of the song and other times it sounds too loud. my impression was that compression will help smooth out my performance so that it doesnt sound up and down in volume thats why rap needs it so much.
    however it seems everytime i do compression it sounds worse. ive been playin around with my options gain, threshold, attack, release, knee but i cant find the right combo. i tried setting pro tools the same as cool edit pros 4:1 preset but i dont know what to do about the knee and it still sounds off.
    anyway what do you all use so i can have a starting point i know its not the same for every voice and i know what each option does but i cant even come close to a smoothed out edit.
    even if my performance is really smooth and i like it how it is i see how compression changes it just to learn and it always sounds bad or unnatural or loud and quiet and not smooth. HELP!!!

    i use cool edit...

    effects > aplitude > dynamic processing > fast drums (preset)

    its a 2:1 ratio with a -20 threshold and some other shit... just play around with it until you figure it out..
