Home Recording

This track shows some of the joys of  (sarcasm) home recording, and not being able to run a compressor as part of the recording process. The high hits of this funk track were strong, so we decided to pull them down manually before running a digital compressor over the whole track? Why? To keep the track sounding as natural as possible. When recording aim to get the best, most balanced, signal possible recorded. It's a lot easier to adjust a good track than a bad one!
