Here is another very helpful video from Davlav. He has a lot of videos that are very well done and I have personally enjoyed them a lot. Check it out. Fairly short one here.
Nice vid. Good to see folks putting info out there!
I definitely like moving the compressor around in a preset. For heavily-effected ambient presets I like a comp after delays and reverbs, it can really squish them and glue them together. It’s almost a saturation-type effect where the wet fx become thicker and more present. Gotta watch out for hiss/noise when combining comps or just pushing them hard, but finding that balance has yielded some interesting tones and fx for me. Series compressors are also something to explore when you’re looking for a different feel or a really squishy effect
An unusually high ratio and release setting for guitar compression used in this video. Interesting, I wouldn’t run things that high ordinarily. Almost running like a gate at a ratio of 12.
