Usage Tips

  • Understanding compression is equal part science & art. For those new to compression I recommend adjusting the THRESHOLD & INPUT to set the desired amount of compression. Use your ears & not your meters. Set your ATTACK time to your desired amount of slap/punch. Use the RELEASE to shape & color your sound. Fast release times can really smooth things out. It’s equal part saturation & peak limiting combined. Longer release times can emphasize the attack transients. Use the MAKEUP GAIN to set your final output level. Most importantly experiment.
  • The DME 1968 is an excellent Channel or Bus insert.


  • Nebula 3 Pro 1.3.475 or newer
