What is the recommended ratio to use for compressing talk; and also vocals accompanied by acoustic guitar, and just acoustic guitar?
It seems if you go too high past 2:1 it starts to become too harsh. I would guess lower better but of course if you want to compress more you have to go higher (3:1, 4:1 etc., towards 10:1).
I can’t seem to find a straight answer on this anywhere. Tons of info on-line but nothing too concise or to the point?? Maybe I already answered my own question here but I sometimes can’t seem to tell when I’m hurting the audio by using too much of a ratio. Any input appreciated, thanks.
